Fixing stonechips/scratches

I was just wanted to know if anyone has any good tips or techniques to paint small chips and scracthes. I have the right paint from ford, acrylic thinners and clear coat, but was wandering how your applied it etc?

I was told to use a very fine brush and start from the middle of the chip and work your way out so you don't have a buildup around the edges.

Re: Fixing stonechips/scratches

Thats how you do it.. start in the middle and work your way out. The way i do it is make a blob doing it that way. And then when it dries sand it back with some really fine grade sandpaper til its smooth and bobs your uncle, your done

Re: Fixing stonechips/scratches

With yor chips lightley rub them with 1500w/d then apply 2to3 drops of colour allow to dry inbetween each one apply clear same way. When all dry with a flat rubber block and 1500w/d lightley sand then pollish. Scratches do basicley the same but if you can get what we call a dag line touch up brush it starts of wide and ends in a point perfict for scratches.

Re: Fixing stonechips/scratches

thanks for the tips, but still confused how much acrylic thinner i should use with paint and how to mix it? Also do you just use masking tape around the edges of the chip when you sand it?

Re: Fixing stonechips/scratches

When yuo use your colour just fill a coke bottle lid 1/4 with paint add 3to4 drops of thiners stir with end of brush dont need to mask up before you put on clear lightly rub flat witth block with 1500w/d. Put clear in same thing add 1/4 clear 6to8 drops of thiner apply first 2 coats inside of repair and 2 just over allow over night to dry or wave a heat gun over it for 10min let sit 1hr block flat then pollish. If you can get hold of a air brush best thing to do scratches with.
