Just from their website. www.chipex.co.uk straight forward and helpful. Their website will be able to tell you the paint code you need

But the colour blends in so well it must already have something in the paint otherwise it would look a little flat and stand out right?

Well worth a try anyhow. In fact I am delivering in Banbury tomorrow in their road. Will pop in to get some more info.

This as got to be better than just leaving the chips alone. Have seen some Minis where they start to blister up over time as the water soaks into the base coat once the lacquer as been broken away.

I'm no expert on the stuff. I was looking at getting a full re-spray and vinyl wrap. I owe Bep Phil for letting me know about this stuff much cheaper than a re-spray and does the job! Their guarantee is what really impressed me too

Does it blend in that well that your reckon it would cover some large deep scratches on a temporary basis on my bonnet untill I can sort a respray? If it blends that well I'm sure it will b better than it is now

Not sure on scratches, if you've got some chips you want to do away with the this is the stuff for you. Can't see any harm is trying it on a deep scratch though? If it doesn't work the 2nd stage will remove the excess and can take it all off of required.

So you cant really see how good it worked but its amazing stuff. Their guarantee is so good, if you post before and after photos on their facebook, you get another kit free in any colour you want! So that's the black roof and wing mirrors sorted :
Can you pm me how we get the second set as will get the black to like you . Which black did you order for roof etc

Cheers buddy

Im not 100% sure what black my roof and mirrors are

My guess would be Astro Black but I will ask Chandlers when I pick the beast up. I keep updating the interlink website to see where my GP2 Diffuser is and currently it is... ITS SIGNED FOR WOOOOOOO

I'll PM you the details 'lover'. That's what they say down there right?

Washington Coachworks 👌 give them a google. Phil is a brilliant guy.

They do all the work for Peter Saywell who owns the greatest supercar collection in the UK :-)
