Paint chip repair product

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

Dan

Yup, I got mine a while back. Sorry, but I've been working too hard during the week and it's been way too hot here on weekends. Soon, I hope...

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.
