before and after pics would be great to see plus good luck with aiming for a freebie, always a bonus.

I used my paint kit yesterday. No problems at all and a perfect colour match. The repair was done as they suggest and it is certainly the best I have ever managed, you have to look quite closely to see where it was, so I would def recommend Chipex. Delivery and service were A1 too.

Cool Re: paint match issues

Hi Peter, glad to hear your happy with your result. Had a good look at my gash and seems a lot more damage than first thought so going to have to wait for a whole warm weekend free to repair mine.Had to do a quick bodge to hide and seal but as long as i stick to 80 mph no one will notice. Did you use heaters to dry the paint.

Re: paint match issues

No need to use heaters with the Chipex stuff it does dry very quickly even in cold temperatures. I am pleased enough to buy another kit for the Bravo. I recently bought a DA polisher which I used on my Mothers car. I sprayed a scratch that ran right down the whole side. Basiccally I just walked down the car and back with the colour coat and then with clear. It looked so bad I was having kittens. I then used a 2500 disc which also made it look pretty grim, but with some finishing compound and about an hours work it has polished up so well you actually cannot see where I have been. I think this tool is one of the best things I have ever bought and would recommend it for spray repairs.
