Good advice, thank you. I'll definitely watch some YouTube videos before I have a go.

I have a chip inside one of the door shuts, so thought that would be a good place for a first attempt.

I’ll be sure to take some before and after photos - they are offering a free kit if you do a review for them with good quality photos. Can’t be bad - I need to attend to some stone chips on my wife’s car so that would be perfect!

How did it go Paul? Interested to see how well the match is!

Hi Toby,

I've not had chance to try it yet. I certainly didn't want to rush it, so I need some time to get the car nice and clean and then have a go. It's filthy at the moment with all the rain over the last few days. Maybe this weekend, but I'll keep you posted with the results.

How did you get on with this Paul? I’ve got the minutest chip that’s sent my OCD into over drive. How was the colour match?

I know this is ridiculous, but I've not used it yet. The car is either in need of a clean, or if I spend time cleaning it I've not got time to get the touch up paint out. I can't believe I'd have it a year now though, I'm actually embarrassed. I will make an effort to use it!

I may use mine before you then since I’ve ordered a kit!

Sodding boot opened when rear parked against a wall (fob button probably unwittingly depressed in my jeans pocket) chipped about a half a centimetre strip of paint on the underside of the rear hatch so not really noticeable except to me. Decent place to test the stuff mind you.

I know I will get round to it soon because this kind of stuff drives me loopy.

I bought mine for a small chip inside the door shut. Obviously not really that visible, but like yourself I know it's there. It will also be a good test area.

Hopefully we can compare results if I pull my finger out....
