i tore my acl and meniscus so cant drive stick so figured i would take the day to work on the car instead, i had ordered the dr colorchip after reading this thread and just finished using it on my SG

in total i had approx 40 small (approx 1/16'') chips, and 5 no larger then 1/8'' , from start to finish it took me approx 45 minutes

its very easy to do, you dab it on, smear it with your thumb or finger and them wipe off 2 minutes later, its takes a few tries to get the hang of how much to apply and how hard to smear, i found that the white stick was easiest to apply the paint and then my finger using very light pressure to smear it worked best, (hardly any pressure, barely touching it) removing it is very easy and again no pressure should be used, literally let the fluid and rag do the work, just rub it very lightly back and forth, if you rub too hard it might remove too much.

i was very happy with the results, its obviously not as good as a re-spray but i really dont notice my chips anymore unless i go looking for them, it didint work too well on a couple of chips that were larger than 1/8'' but they look better than they did. I will use this product again and anyone who has chips should try this.



before


after dabbing and smearing


after wiping off excess and buffing with a microfiber cloth

guys this is no different than using oem touch up paint, then using a mild thinners or prepsol, hell even a clay bar, to remove the excess paint on the clear coat

huge props to the guy who came up with this money maker

no-ones saying it is but for those people who either cant be bothered to run arround buying touch up paint, brushes, thinners etc or those people who dont have enough experience to know exactly what thinner to use or are worried about damaging the paint then this is a good little kit with fool proof instructions and quick results

i'm sure they make a good profit on the kit....i'm also sure the people who make thinners, brushes, paint etc also make a profit, for me the convenience made the price worthwhile

I use this product all the time. Its great. On the larger rock chips I use the langta blob remover. Dr. Color Chip seems like it just cant do the bigger chips.

I am using it right now touching up a Topaz color... so far it works well.. talked to Dr Chip and he said the best method is to put the paint on the outside of the chip and then roll the paint into the chip with your thumb. I am going to be doing some major road rash chips and will take photos. The chips I have fixed look good.. and the paint matches better than OEM IMO

I use the factory touch up kit but use a fine tipped detailing brush that is safe to use with enamel paint. I picked up a 4 pack from Hobby Lobby for $4. Works good enough for me.

I had multiple road rashes and just maybe a few chips on my hood and bumper.

So what I did was taped up the outer edge of the hood grill, headlight/corner lights, fog light, amber bumpers, and the outer edge of my bumper grill. I poured pain supplied onto a white t-shirt and just wiped it on the surface of the car. Worked like a charm with Dr colorchips big size bottle.

I also did the side rear view mirros, the fronts of each four fender, the lower portion of the side of the car below the body molding, and the lower portion of the rear bumper the same way.

Best trick for bigger chips is to allow enough dry time (I would leave most small and road rash stuff on there for a good 15mins). It will require some scrubbing to remove with the supplied solution though. It also isn't recommended to wax the vehicle for a couple weeks. After all, it IS real paint that's being used and it needs time to cure.
