    An unfortunate chip on the top of my front wing happened this morning (you know it's going to be bad when you can see the stone coming :shock:), so I thought it would be a good chance to give "Dr. Colourchip" another try.

    Photos 1 & 2 show the chip prior to treatment. Horrible, but not as bad as I had feared.

    Photo 3 shows the paint after putting a blob next to the chip, and smearing it with my thumb, as per the directions. At this stage it looks worse than before I started...

    ...but Photos 4 & 5 show the end result, after giving the paint a few minutes to harden, and then wiping over with the "blending" solution.

    It isn't bad, but IMHO no better than I could have achieved using the standard Honda touch up kit and a cocktail stick. If you look to the bottom corner of the final two photos, you can see another, very similar, chip that was treated a while ago using the traditional method, which I think rather makes the point.

    Hopefully this may be useful for members who were considering buying the "Dr. Colourchip" system - at c£60, I stand by my original comments - it isn't worth the money except for the tiniest of chips, where it does a sound job.

    I know I have thanked you in your previous post reading this product,but good on you to give the product a second chance, It just goes to prove you did nothing wrong and have followed their instructions to the letter and the product does not deliver.

    Thanks CJ. It isn't a BAD product, it just isn't worth the money IMHO and the claims made are a bit fanciful - aren't they always?!

    Like I said, on very small chips on metal, it does work very well - road rash they call it - bigger chips, just stick to a normal touch up.

    I bought one of their kits and can concur, waste of money.
