    Mine had a plastic blade in it that you use with the solvent to level the paint off ?

    nope, no blade in mine! just a cloth, which effectivley wipes off all the paint you do manage to leave in the chip after smearing it with your finger! ive had no response from chipex yet from the email I sent them, maybe they dont work on saturdays and i`ll have to wait till monday.

    hi afcneal, I was starting to think maybe it was just me! Out of interest did you contact chipex about it and if so what was their response? If youve got a fairly steady hand and a very small (00 or 000) artists brush then have a go with the method Ive tried explaining above. To be honest, its still a method in progress! I carried on with it yesterday after my dissappointing efforts with chipex and have now got a nearly invisible repair with metalic paint. Not sure if im going to do another layer or laquer it today. After ive woken up properly (long nightshift last night!) i`ll take another look and decide what im going to do. If you dont understand my method of repairing the chips, pm me and i`ll try to explain it better to you.

    Did you have a blade ?

    Bizarre how we can all get such different experiences.

    Hello I have just seen this post following the PM today.

    I am posting to confirm what is included in the kit which is as follows:

    1 x Bottle of Chipex paint
    1 x Blending solution
    1 x Polish
    4 x Micro Brushes
    3 x Body wipes (paint removal clothes)
    1 x Microfibre cloth
    1 x Instructions

    Should you have any applications issues please do get in touch so that we can help. It is important to note that you must remove any residual polish that might be inside the chip must be removed prior to application of the paint, otherwise the paint will not adhere to the surface due to the polish. Polish can be removed by using the blending solution provided or alcohol wipes. Should the chips be deep you should increase the drying time to around 20 minutes so as to allow the paint to dry though out prior to using the blending solution to remove the excess. Furthermore it is important to apply to apply only a small amount of the blending solution to the cloth and to wipe gently over the surface.

    We no longer include a plastic scrapper in the kit as using the cloth on its own provides the same result. Please also look underneath the cardboard carton insert as the brushes can sometimes move there during shipping.

    Should you have any questions please do get in touch at: info@chipex.co.uk or call on 01295-258308

    Many thanks.

    Im quite surprised by the amount of people that have viewed this post, yet only a couple have shared their experiences of using chipex. I really wouldve been interested to hear from other people that had used it.
