Review: Dr. Color Chip
Well, I decided to try Dr. Color Chip for my Jet Black Beast and thought I'd give some preliminary observations.
For those who don't know, it's basically a 2 step touch up paint kit. The first step is a liquid that is the actual color of the car, you paint the chip or scratch with an included fine brush, then "rub" it out using a glove they provide you with. Then wait less than a minute to let it dry.
Then, you use this Pinkish liquid solution on a towel, called Prefast, which you lightly rub over the the touch up paint, which removes the excess paint and supposedly leaves the scratch or chip filled with your touch up color.
That said, I followed the directions as suggested and after several layers, I managed to fill up a small 1 inch scratch. However, the touch up paint is a bit cloudy, so the scratch is still obviously there, but instead of being on a white background, the scratch is a milky black color.
I also tried it on a 1 and 2mm diameter chip and got the same results.
However, the directions say that you should wait 7-10 days for the paint to cure, at which time, it will cure to a shine. So I'll followup in a few days with my final observations and some photos.
