What You Should Know*

Not all products and services are equal!

Many claim to provide OEM colours; however, their colours can be too light or too dark as each car experiences varying levels of UV exposure producing colour shifts.

While we strive to fill the chip, it’s only natural that a slight edge will remain. Our process minimises the edge effect. What’s more, our process ensures no large paint repair blobs on your vehicles paint surface.

Some fine or significantly large chips on plastic may only be repaired with artist pencil techniques. Your operator will discuss this with when viewing the vehicle.

The range of colours that can be matched is extensive, including ugly chips in pearl and multi layer effect finished can be hidden to the extent that they are no longer an eye sore.

Our Process

Step 1: Surface Preparation

Clean the surface back and where needed machine polish the area to provide the best colour match and smooth edge.

Step 2: Colour Match

From an extensive selection of base colours we can create a paint chip filler colour that will be difficult to detect from 1mtr (industry standard for SMART repair).

Step 3: Fill & Smooth

The SMART repair paint is sprayed into the chip as multiple layers (larger chips may require pencil touching). The paint is allowed to dry back then smoothed out to provide a near to level paint chip repair.
