A few weeks ago, somebody posted a link to Dr. ColorChip. There were before and after photos which looked good. Several members replyed they were ordering and would post results after trying the product.

Anybody tried this yet?? Does it work as advertised??

Thanks

I posted my results in a thread last week. It works fairly well. It takes a lot of time and practice though to get the result perfectly smooth so that you can't tell there was a touch up. I ended up using it for all the big ones I could, which require a lot of finesse. The little ones wiped up pretty quickly, but my front end is so sandblasted I haven't felt like taking a whole day to get every little nick. I'll post better pics when I get to it, but for 40 bucks it was worth it.

dr. colorchip results

I touched up my '03 LeMans blue beast today and i was very happy with the results. Most of my chips are tiny road rash on the front of the hood and mirrors. The application was easy with a soft t shirt and the included pre fast liquid and cloth took off all excess paint. I was a little tentative on the first areas so I'll go back over it but quite a big difference and worth the price vs body shop.
Small scratches that one can feel with fingernail also covered up well. I had one deep chip which i just went over 3 or 4 times and it came out smooth. The nice thing about this stuff was there was no blobbing, just paint smooth surface of new paint. I did not take any before shots so I have nothing to show.

I spent just a few minutes with it with Dan's car, and it looks promising...mostly on the *small* stuff.

anybody happen to know offhand what the color code for sterling gray?

thanks in advance :cheers:
I believe that year, make, model and color name are sufficient for them to look up the code. At least that's what their website implies. We'll find out in a week or so when mine arrives...
