Re: First scratch, after 8 months FML

Dr Colorchip color match is excellent. It works very well for rock dings, etc. although using their instructions it covers the ding pretty well but leaves the outline there if you get closer than 2-3 feet.
It notes that for small long scratches it doesn't work as well--largely because the outline of the scratch is more visible than a covered ding from 3 feet.

I played with a couple dings/scratches, having the missus very carefully fill them with a toothpick brush and let that harden for half a day, then did their standard application and that looked much better than their instructions.

May even try filling with standard dealer touch up paint, let that harden for a week and then use the Dr. Colorchip as final finish once it quits raining every @#$#$ weekend.
