I found the blending solution to be just like thinners, so I mainly worked it on areas around the chip so as not to remove the paint from the chip, then when I got the excess removed I just gave it a quick once over the chip to smooth it. Will do some more practicing later
great to see some pics at last! its also good to hear some people are having good results. it didnt work for me, but good luck and well done to those who it has worked for. in my opinion though, for the price of the kit, and the miss/hit of the user attempts, i think youre still better off getting a tin of paint (colour matched), a small artist brush and a tin of thinners and repairing your paint that way.
the way I was going I'd have run out of the blending solution before way cleaning up the excess paint!
Might just contact chippex direct and see what they say ?
It's certainly not as easy and simple as it first seems anyway and the point made about buying paint and thinners is a good one, I assume that's all this chipex stuff is TBH, with a little packaging and a guide.
Not a bad product but I can understand the apathy towards it now I've tried it properly
slowtech, go for the paint brush method, ive done my entire bonnet and it looks good! i had two big ish chips, (couple of mm) and a bit of gravel rash too. im a bit fussy (well actually very! so for me to be happy it has to be as close to factory finish as poss!!) so when i say it looks good, i mean really good. ive noticed a small rust patch on the inside lip of a wheel arch, im going to invest in an airbrush for this and see what i can achieve.
What I would suggest to Chipex IIRC the chap's name is Jonny - nice bloke Is to hold a forum meet at their place and hopefully we'll all turn up and see how the experts use it?
Just a thought, we'll all have our own methods, it's what we do, we're blokes, take a bit of instruction and then MODIFY it
Be nice to see how Chipex themselves do it I think...
Jonny offered some time ago Lewy, so I am sure he will be up for it. Could incorporate the next Mids meet in Banbury ?
