    so, im testing my hand at paint chip repair. I got a kit from Lanka, it looks real easy to use. I got this huge chip on my hood right above the passenger side headlight. This will test their kit I think. Here is a before, and tomorrow I will post an after (after several coats and polishing it out).

    Good luck with that... You may want to give it a few more days. The instructions I got said to wait 30 days before polishing. Some chips were ok after a day, others the new paint came out of the chip completely. It's been about two weeks, so I'm going to do the others this weekend.

    workin pretty good so far, I removed the "blob" on some smaller ones and just about lost track of them. This one on the front is huge!!! more coats of paint needed.
