"This stuff is fantastic! Porsche has a sloping nose which the stones glance off of. Therefore, I get "stone scratches" not true chips and your paint clears it up great-no marks left. Looks just like a new car."
- Luther Conant, Port Orange, FL
"I've tried a few of the other chip repair systems and Dr. ColorChip has given me the best results. I'm very picky about how my cars look and when I used "the doctor" on my Mazda MX-5, the results were really good. Nothing will ever be factory paint but as long as there are stones on roads and people with shopping carts, the doctor will be in my garage."
- Rick, NJ
"I'll admit, I was a bit skeptical as to whether your product would work as well as the claims, but I was pleasantly surprised. The procedure couldn't be any easer. Not much work for great results, especially with multiple applications.
All that and great customer service, the perfect combination.Good luck with your business."
- George Michaels, Virginia Beach, VA
"Dr. ColorChip has allowed us to provide our customers with a much improved "touchup" product/process. We use the process on everything from General Motors GM Sponsored Sales vehicles to those of our major national consignors (HSBC, Americredit, Citifinancial Auto, among others). The results are amazing. Not only does the process offer a superior "look", it offers durability no other touch up process we tried can match. Auctions and dealerships alike will find this a very cost effective way to offer their client a better looking vehicle with a longer lasting finish."
-Bruce Beam, General Manager

"I was skeptical when I saw the demo photos, but I have to say the repairs came out just like your website shows them. My Porsche Boxster (Guards Red) looked like it followed a gravel truck around for weeks. Most of the chips are not visible at all anymore, and the larger ones are drastically reduced. I'm the only one who would even notice them now. The 'no blobs' concept is a great one, and I was really impressed at the final result."
- Howard Silverman, NY
"Two weeks ago I ordered a touch-up kit for my 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. The paint color is Dark Forest Green.There are (were) some dings, surface scratches and chips in the paint from nine years of use. I applied your paint to these areas as you say in your directions
and miraculously the scratches and chips were gone! Your product is amazing and is everything you claim it to be. After installing new headlight assemblies, new alloy wheels and using your wonderful product, everyone thinks I just bought a new van. I am so glad I found your website and ordered your product."
- Bob Perl, Powder Springs, Georgia
"I recently purchased a kit from you for a 1995 BMW 530i in Orient Blue. The product is fantastic... All I can say is before I started, it looked like someone shot my hood with a shotgun."
- Michael J. Patch, Racine, Wisconsin

"I just wanted to say that I used your basic paint touchup kit this past weekend w/ excellent results. I have a vintage Porsche that “had” some road rash on the front painted bumper and lower area of the hood. Your touch-up paint process gave me flawless results. I can’t even tell where I fixed the paint it worked so well. I was skeptical but am totally sold on your product. I recommended your product to all the members on the Porsche website/club I am a member of and plan on purchasing two more kits from your company for my daily driver car and my wife’s car."

Our paint system is primarily designed to address chips, but it will work well on certain types of scratches and poorly on others. There are several variables that determine repair quality:
Deep Scratches - Deep, narrow scratches (1/16" or less) down to the metal will usually hold paint. As our paint is instantly malleable (in this case, tacky, yet removable), there is some flexibilty in finessing the paint into place. The various brushes in the kit also allow for more precise painting of scratches that can't effectively be repaired by our standard process.
Wide Scratches - Wide scratches (1/16" or greater), gashes or other large defects will likely need to have the paint applied and left as is. Filling and spraying these types of damage is the only way to get a 'like new' repair.
Light Surface Scratches - Generally these can be buffed out. If you can feel them with your fingernail, they might come out completely with some wet-sanding and buffing. Otherwise, our precision brush can be used to lightly apply the paint over the scratch and left as is.
Key Scratches - We don't recommend buying our kit soley for fixing key scratches unless the vehicle color is dark, and the scratch is short and deep. A long key scratch on a light silver or gold car will show almost no difference, even if the paint completely fills the scratch. However, if you are not inclined to pay for a body shop repair, the special brushes in the kit will help you make the best repair possible.
Vehicle Color - The color of the vehicle also determines the quality of the scratch repair. Darker colors always look better than light ones. A scratch on a black or dark red metallic vehicle will always look better afterward than on a light silver or gold one.
