    This is a 3 stage menzera paint correction topped with wolfgang v3 sealer
    Car looks like a sheet of glass
    I have used zanio in the past and liked it , I find the wolfgang is a bit more reflective on metallic colors
    I use a rotary however , but I restore paint for a living 50 hours a week
    I have seen my fair share of bad DIY rotary and dual action jobs that get sent my way to repair

    Everyone's car looks great. It's making me feel guilty about the shitty state mine is in.

    Here's an even better question. How does everyone avoid getting all kinds of rock chips and what not? I've got a ton of them, and I've always gotten a ton of them, on pretty much every car I've owned.

    A clear bra will eliminate them (mine has), but once you get them, I don't know the best way to fix them.

    If road rash is minor it can be greatly reduced my wet sanding and polishing then follow up with a few coats of your favourite lsp
    I always recommend to my customers that daily there cars to get the clear film done like Rander said
    If the rash is deep best option is repaint or reclear the affected areas
    Iam not a fan of touch ups on rash

    Don't drive on the highway. I swear that's where all chips come from.

    I can't hang from a dig. I'm peeling out in 1st and 2nd while he is just AWD'ing away from me lol.

    We did 30-40+ and I pulled a car length on him and we ran out of road both times. The thing is really fn fast. I don't know how much psi they crank those turbos up to with that tune, but it's all you can hear. It's pretty sweet.

    That's my current system too. Sometimes I go to the automatic car wash and get the "wax" if it's on special...

    You guys are lucky... My fiancee already complains about when I detail my car. I had to bribe her with a spa day just so she would let me clay bar and wax the V.

    Clear bras are great. I just bought a 2013 Toyota Highlander Limited for my wife in March and the first thing I did was call and schedule an appointment to get that put on. The thing no one told me that I had to figure out for myself was that bugs and whatnot are very hard to wash off of the clear bra and using your fingernails when a car sponge doesn't work leaves scratches...a coat of wax took care of that.

    Here's what I did to fix the paint chips on the front of my car. Worked incredible well, as you can see from the photos:

    Very nice. Most of my paint is in excellent condition however my front lower bumper could really benefit from this. Thank you for the info as well as testing this on your own vehicle first.

    I've used the Dr. Colorchip on the V and my wife's Oriental Blue E39 BMW. I have to admit that it worked better on the BMW than the V, how hard is BLACK to match anyway, LOL. On a serious note, the Dr. Colorchip MAY take multiple coats for really deep nicks, but I am absolutely impressed with the application process that doesn't end up looking like globs of touch up paint. It can be fairly time consuming and the smallest kit they make is a LOT of touch up paint, it's really the blending solution and cloths that you may run out of if you're trying to touch up the ENTIRE car and have a ton of chips you're dealing with.
