"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 Contant, 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."

Wash and thoroughly dry the car. If you have visible remnants of wax in the chips, remove it with a little rubbing alcohol or mineral spirits on a soft cloth. Don't scrub! Otherwise, a clean dry surface is all you need. The area to be repaired must be completely dry.
Yes, as far as we've tested. Eight years is the longest repair we've monitored (a chip repair), and it looks the same as it did the day it was applied. Most touch-up paints shrink up over time after they've dried and cured. Our paint does not shrink. It should remain the same as it appears after application for years to come.
Wash & dry the vehicle. Do any "hard" detailing first, like wet-sanding, compounding and buffing. Then use our paint. Follow up with standard waxing a week later. Refrain from using a circular buffing wheel and wool pad for at least 30 days. We suggest using a random-orbit buffer with a foam pad and quality compound at all times for the best, swirl-free results (rather than the circular buffer and wool pad.)
Yes. All paint is mixed to OEM specifications using the color-code you provide with your order, ensuring your paint is as fresh as it can be. Plus, with thousands of color codes on the market, we couldn't possibly inventory them all.
The paint should last at least a year from the ship date in the bottle, provided you don't use most of it right away. A bottle that is half-full will obviously dry out faster. Store in a dark, dry, cool place. For optimal shelf life, shake the bottle every now and then. The SealAct blending solution has an indefinite shelf life.
We suggest temps above freezing for best results.
No. What you see is the final product. Photos do not show every minute detail of course. Upon close inspection in person, some repaired chips will be visible when looking for them, but standing a few feet from the vehicle they shouldn't be noticeable.
The paint included in your Dr. Colorchip repair kit is not regular touch-up paint and is made to work with the SealAct solution, but may be used alone. Feel free to order just the paint if you plan on applying it and leaving it as is.
The SealAct blending solution is a proprietary product developed to work with our paint only. It will not work with regular touch-up paint. Best results are achieved using our touch-up paint and SealAct blending solutions as directed in the repair kit instructions.
