PostSubject: Chipex Paint Chip Repair System   4th July 2014, 15:41

Hi all

Just purchased a colour-matched Chipex Kit for my car (as advertised on SNM site) and it's BRILLIANT.

This is a DIY paint chip restoration system that uses proper manufacturer's colour matched paint to achieve almost invisible repairs to paintwork chips and scratches.

Basically it's a 3-step process whereby you clean the area of the chip/chips that you want to repair with the supplied solvent, then apply the paint with a micro brush, then once semi-dried, remove excess paint from the area surrounding the chip with the blending solvent, before finally finishing the blending-in with the special finishing polish.

I've just done about 10 chips on my driver's door on my Black R53 JCW which were caused by gravel spat-up by the offside front wheel, and you cannot see where they were.

This is so much better than the BMW/MINI touch-up paint sticks and a massively cheaper than having the whole door resprayed.

You get loads of materials with the pack and it's a very quick and easy process to do yourself with amazing results.

I can't recommend it highly enough!

I use Chipex, it's so easy to do and find it much better than others on the market as the paint only stays in the chip and not on the paint work. Deep chips you have to do a few times to build it up.

If you look hard in certain lights ...yes you can see it. But It's  better than looking at white road rash all over your bonnet. I love the stuff and was filling some yesterday.
You only need to leave it on for about 10-15 mins for a good result. Some people I have spoken to say they left on much longer and the result was not good.

Just brought some for the GP

If anyone is thinking of buying any then let me know as I have just been sent an email from them with free delivery and 10% off . The offer is only open for 24 hrs.

It not much but better than nothing. I will forward you the promotional email code

I must have another go with mine, as I did not have much success the first time. Perhaps I'm leaving it too long as you have just said Chris. scratch

Let me know what you want James and I'll order it later thumbs up

I had a good look at the results on Sheldon at the weekend Roger, and it certainly looks good.

Just ordered this for Oscar, not sure it will do the chip I need it to but it's worth a go, before I pay out a fortune to have the bumper resprayed.

Found this scratch on the rear bumper when got back to the car after leaving it in a car park during a weekend away. Manager to polish some of it out but wondered if Chipex would help? Sorry I missed the bulk buy.

I find the results on my bumper was not as good as on the metal body work. There are other things on the market which Phil T was impressed with. PM him
