I have a lot of paint chips on my hood and they are getting annoying. I'm sure some are wondering the best way to fix them. I wanted to start a thread with links on how to repair them easily.

This topic has been covered here also:
http://www.elantraclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=1119

Richard (F1Guy) recommended a few products that would help such as Mother's Paint Repair Kit and Langka Paint repair kit. The Langka kit is used in the below link from Detail City.

Here is an example of a repair done by a guy at DetailCity.com

Product Tested @ DetailCity.com


Where can you buy this?

I would first check with your local car part store. If not, it's available online!

Langka.com

Superior Car Care

PremiumAutoCare.com




I would recommend the Langka kit as the instructions are clear and to the point! They give good tips on how to use the product on the Langka website. But what you really need when using these kits is PATIENCE! smile.gif

Also remember, the kits that are mentioned here are used when touch up is applied. If you have a minor scratch (surface scratch in clearcoat), this can be easily fixed using a coumpoud like Meguiars Scratch-X or Poorboy's SSR's. Better results when applying them with a ROB. (Random Orbital Buffer)

I will keep searching and will add more links to this page. If you have any to share, send me a PM and I will add them here!
