Received a response from Dr. Colorchip that it's OK to leave paint for more than 24 hours. Also mentioned that it's noticeably harder to remove excess paint in colder weather...

There's no way the solution will remove the excess paint after 30 minutes. It's dried rock solid and won't come off without scraping it off. 24 hours is completely out of the question. Trust me, I've got a few blotches where I missed

I was able to remove the excess paint after 24 hours. You have to use a lot of force to get it off.

Good to know, but I'm not sure thats a better method than just wiping off immediately and applying a few layers.

*shrug* I've never had any success past 30 minutes. I've done at least 75 chips.

Supplied paint is probably more than enough to paint all problematic areas on at least 2 cars.... what do you guys think?

Mine has been on for over a year without issue. Did you prep correctly (i.e. - wash and clean with alcohol) before painting?

Just follow the directions... Clean, Dab, Smear, let dry, then lightly buff with Sealact until its off the surrounding paint. Repeat until its level...

The repeat part is the big one, I've gone 9 layers in a few repairs before it was filled completely...

Also, let the Sealact do the work, I use almost zero pressure... Takes some time before it starts to work, but if you use any pressure it will pull the repair out of the chip too. I've left the paint on from minute's up to 10 hours and had no trouble removing it.

seems to be hit or miss... I received what was essentially burgundy for my Ducati. Color was quite a few shades off. I had better luck walking into a local body shop and giving them my paint code and the same $30. I walked out with a solid 6oz of paint (nearly 5x what you find in that tube) and it matched!

Appreciate the advice...dark grey..I was looking for that color initially but none around in the limited edition when I was looking. I am happy with the crystal grey
