    Stone chip paint repair ...

    I have an annoying 1mm size stone chip centre front bonnet (or 'hood' if you're reading this across The Pond! ) which has been there an age (OK, I know, I've been ignoring it! ) but it has now chosen to develop a flaky looking semi-circle surround telling me I ought to do something about it.

    I'm finding mixed reviews regarding DIY kit 'Chipex'.


    So I'm thinking it might be better to trust the so-called 'professionals' ... how about 'Chipsaway'?


    Not even looked for the colour code tag yet, early days (just happened), but do need to get sorted.

    I could ask my son's Detailer or indeed my IndyMech but I thought I'd seek trusted Forum views first.


    Any/all advice welcome.

    Your colour code is JHV Zircon. I got a touchup from ebay but I cannot remember who I got it from. Good for small chips but if you have allowed it to get too bad then you will need to sand it down and respray.
    Chipex kits are good but Chipsaway may do a better job.
