"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

Yes. Our paint works well on fixing chips on painted bumpers and moulding. If you have large gouges or missing plastic, all you can do is apply the paint and leave it as is. See below for an example on a badly road-rashed bumper.
If you have surface rust in the area you want to paint, you should remove it first if possible.
On larger chips, a product that may be useful is a sanding pen made by 3M.
It appears to have a fiberglass tip that is used to rub away rust in medium to larger areas. The tip is about 1/8 of an inch wide but we suggest using it in areas 1/4 inch or more. If you use this, be careful not to scrape into the adjacent paint finish.
The paint will adhere to exposed metal, plastic, fiberglass and primed surfaces.
The only trouble spot we've seen is when chips reveal a gray primer color that appears plastic-like in texture. To the best of our knowledge, this is a coating applied to the vehicle prior to painting to prevent rust. When this color is exposed, the chip has gone through the paint but not down to the metal.
Our paint has had trouble at times adhering to this surface when using our standard application and removal process. Rubbing the chip with alcohol may help adhesion. It may also be necessary to let the paint dry longer on these spots before removing the excess. Or as a last resort, it may be necessary to apply the paint with the fine-tipped brush and leave it as is.
