I got round to having a go at the stone chips earlier this week. i wasn't 100% happy about the colour of the Halfords paint. Although it looked ok on the brush, it just seemed a bit dull after application and a bit of drying time. I decided to get a touch-up brush from Ford, and have just been to collect it as they had to order it in.
I'm a bit confused now. As per my original post, the Halfords version had primer and colour coat, but no laquer. The Ford version has the colour coat, but also includes a laquer. Can anyone clarify for me if I should use the laquer or not? The fella in the parts department said I'd need to use it, but I don't know if he was guessing a bit.
Can anyone help with the best way do do touch-ups? The version I'm trying (from a Youtube video) is put primer on if down to metal, using a cocktail stick rather than a brush...let dry 24hrs...add layers of colour coat, again using a cocktail stick, until a little proud of surface...after drying a few days, carefully rub down with 2000 or 2500grit wet&dry, keeping wet, until level with surface...polish out.
I'm waiting to get the wet&dry which I'll stick on to a flat surface, maybe the end of a pencil. If fact, as I type, it's just dropped through the letterbox.
Can anyone comment on the technique or offer any advice?
