    Hi I was wondering if anybody could help me with my bonnet, and give me some advice.

    I had a bang with another car last winter and had a dent in my bonnet which bent it out of shape slightly, I got the dent taken out and it re sprayed. When the bonnet was put back on it would fit properly as it was still slightly bent. We bent it back into shape as it was only a little out, and it fit properly but I got a crack in the paint. Is there any way to fix this on the cheap as i dont want to get it re sprayed all over again.

    Don't think chipex will work on that mate. He needs a midi repair

    I have emailed chipex and will wait and see what they say.

    Whats a midi repair?

    I also went down to BMW and got myself their touch up paint and topcoat.
    I'll use that with a toothpick and fill in the paint. But dont know whether to sand down after that and then put the clear top coat on,

    or should I put the paint on then the top coat and then sand the area a little and wax.

    Or as its a crack and the edges are raised, should I sand first a little, then use paint and then put top coat, then sand again lightly and wax.

    I need to get the steps right I guess to do a good job.
