Any certain technique that works over the stock instructions?
I have the larger kit, deep cherry red.
typical rock dings, it does a very good job of covering up, where they note that this is done such that it is not visible at a given distance. You can still see artifacts of the ding afterwards... but from a couple feet you'll very likely not notice them.
Much better than a typical touch up paint can do unless perhaps in the hands of a ding expert.
scratches, particularly ones with any length [as in even 1/4 inch], it will cover up, but you'll still be able to see those. I had a bit better luck letting the cover harden longer on a warm day before rubbing with the second fluid. Thinking about filling with a teeny bit of bondo and a toothpick and trying again.
Overall, it is pricey, and for non scratch type dings, quite good. They do have a competitor that claims to be better on scratches, but I'll either pre-bondo or bribe the dealer's detail guy.
