    Re: Chip and scratch repair

    Well, today I discovered that someone (haha) took a chunk out of the right hand passenger side door. Looks like a door chip, V shaped chip on the shaped section that runs along the car from the front fender to the rear quarter panel.

    How do I correct?

    Re: Chip and scratch repair

    Hi again,

    The car referenced in the earlier posts has a new owner--traded it just over a year ago for the red Azera.

    Paint pen from the dealer has a brush I'd estimate as a 1 (much too wide for most chips). If investing in smaller brushes, I recommend camel's hair brushes because the bristles form a point when wet, which will limit the amount of paint delivered to the surface.

    The pen has clear coat preloaded, eliminating the need to invest in a separate bottle.

    Almost time for the first correction cycle of the year--weather has been dicey still, even this late in the season.

    I personally prefer #000 artist's brush, the smallest there is. Cut the very tip off a little to create a very narrow flat surface for easier and more even paint application.

    Pearl effect paint is IMO the most difficult to match even using factory original base+CC .. Any chip larger than 0.5mm is basically game over, almost impossible to match the glitter and sheen. Audi pearl effect, especially sepang blue is particularly nasty due to the extra glittering bits in the paint which seem to be floating above the base colors. Heck, even Audi themselves at the factory can't seem to match the panels very well.
