not going to knock chipex or any of the others that make a good profit out of this stuff, and people are obviously happy with it.
but just to let people know, after a trial area on the front bumper last night, i went ahead and done the whole bonnet today.
i used normal black touch up stick from bm's (matched to the car obviously)
then as in the chipex and other kits blobbed on the chip as minimal as poss where needed ... i DIDNT wipe off excess , waited around about 2 mins, or at least til it was touch dry without leaving fingerprints,,, then used a screwed up bit of CLEAN white pillowcase with some alcohol that i use in my day job. a light rubbing over the top until the visible blob had gone and left an INVISIBLE chip.
then just in case a little t cut to get off any alcohol, and my usual 3 coat wax system.
and i must say i am over the moon.... the bonnet now looks like its been resprayed (UNBELEIVABLE)
on deeper chips it does take a couple of goes , but then ... GONE
oh, and before you all ask for before and after pics sorry .. i forgot....
but in summary,
before---- i had a good few chips and alot of what i call roadrash (tiny dinks) down to the white stuff
after--- i got a black bonnet
