Paint Chip Repair from bimmian.com
Have chips or scratches on your car but you just can't bring yourself to spend the money it will cost at the body shop to have them repaired? We understand, and may have your solution!
Features and Benefits Of This Product
Our simple 2-step process allows anyone to professionally repair chips in a fraction of the time it takes using regular factory touch-up paint or paint pens and provides far better results. Our paint is NOT the typical stuff you can buy at the local auto parts store or any dealership. It is a unique formulation of high-quality automotive tints and chemicals that when used properly, allow it to dry very quickly, enabling you to blend away all the excess paint in just minutes, leaving paint only in the chips. Our blending solution is also a proprietary concoction that is required to complete most repairs. When used according to the directions, you won't find a faster, more simple and effective way to permanently repair chips.
It's important to keep in mind that this is a paint chip repair / touch-up kit. It is not the answer for all paint repairs, nor is it a substitute for the body shop. However, if you are not inclined to go to the body shop and spend hundreds of dollars to have your vehicle repaired perfectly, our system is sure to be your best alternative.
To ensure you get the freshest paint, each order is custom-mixed at the time you place your order. This process is very quick. Your order usually ships the next business day. Due to the fact that we are mixing each order individually, we can match any BMW paint color. If your paint color is not listed, please choose the OTHER option as listed on our ordering screen and we will contact you for your color detail.
Our paint system is primarily designed to address chips, but it will work well on certain types of scratches, and poorly on others. There are several variables that determine repair quality:
* Deep Scratches - Deep, narrow scratches (1/16" or less) down to the metal will usually hold paint. As our paint is instantly malleable (in this case, tacky, yet removable), there is some flexibilty in finessing the paint into place. The various brushes in the kit also allow for more precise painting of scratches that can't effectively be repaired by our standard process.
* Wide Scratches - Wide scratches (1/16" or greater), gashes or other large defects will likely need to have the paint applied and left as is. Filling and spraying these types of damage is the only way to get a 'like new' repair.
* Light Surface Scratches - Generally these can be buffed out. If you can feel them with your fingernail, they might come out completely with some wet-sanding and buffing. Otherwise, our precision brush can be used to lightly apply the paint over the scratch and left as is.
* Key Scratches - We dont recommend buying our kit soley for fixing key scratches unless the vehicle color is dark, and the scratch is short and deep. A long key scratch on a light silver or gold car will show almost no difference, even if the paint completely fills the scratch. However, if you are not inclined to pay for a body shop repair, the special brushes in the kit will help you make the best repair possible.
* Vehicle Color - The color of the vehicle also determines the quality of the scratch repair. Darker colors always look better than light ones. A scratch on a black or dark red metallic vehicle will always look better afterward than on a light silver or gold one.
Our paint works well on fixing chips on painted bumpers and molding. If you have large gouges or missing plastic, all you can do is apply the paint and leave it as is.
See this page for an example on a badly road-rashed bumper.
We use OEM formulations supplied by the top paint manufacturers to match the color code. Many color codes have variants, or slightly different formulations for the same code due to different production lots or manufacturing locations. The deviations are usually quite minor, and for touch-up purposes, it's highly unlikely you'll notice a difference in color. In the event your color is noticeably different, we will work with you to get a suitable color match.
Chips on most car colors are dramatically reduced or eliminated. Light silver and gold metallic colors generally look much better after inital application, though sometimes are still more visible because the edge of the chip is slightly darker and will catch your eye if large enough. Sometimes with these colors and on larger chips, it's better to use the small-tipped brush and apply a small amount of paint and leave it as is.
One other point on light metallics: Some of our light metallics are made with domestically produced metallic flake, which is polished only on one side. When the paint is applied in a small blob, the flake will turn over and appear darker in color. This darker effect is apparent in the bottle and cap lid after shaking. Once smeared, the flake will re-align itself and appear bright again.
Most chips are not visible unless you're trying to find them. Road-rashed vehicles contain thousands of small chips and most are not visible at all afterward, leaving the overall look of the vehicle dramatically improved. If you're trying to fix one single chip, you're probably going to still see it because you're looking for it.
As all repairs are unique, we realize that for various reasons our paint kit may not be the answer to every situation. This is why we try to give you as much information about our product's limitations and offer photo examples to better help you formulate reasonable expecations.
Our supplier is available to call with any questions or problems you may encounter when applying the paint. We can usually walk you through some steps to resolve the issue. Also, our paints are mixed by hand one at a time, and while we're pretty darn good, we can occassionally screw up an order. If your color match appears off, please contact us and describe the discrepancy. We'll do our best to correct it and ship you another bottle at no charge. If we can't get it right, we'll refund your purchase price upon return of the kit- guaranteed. This guarantee is at the sole discretion of the product manufacturer.
