Touch up repairs - clues/recommendations/tips


Recommended Posts


I am the owner of 66 plate mk7.5 ST line fiesta and am after recommendations, from experience if possible, of good touch up paint vendors/brands.

Moondust silver for bodywork, Rock metallic for wheels

My car's in fenrally good shape.  I've not atteptedpolish but have all the (hand) polish kit ready for when i nake enough time for full decon.

i may graduate to da polisher, but want to see limits of handpolishjng/types of polish first.

I've a few small stone chips/scratches that I want to address. One chip is v small but deep, so will need repair, and another scratch is bigger, deep enough, but still silver ish, so not sure if I'll just paint n clearcoat (as opposed to primer first)

The wheels have a bit of kerbing (I am responsible for 2 - never forgive myself) nothing major but I want to make them look respectable

The car is as good as you could get for 6 years old (2017, but 66 plate).  J won't kid myself it will be perfect but I am perfectionist enough to want to do a great job, so my eyes are not drawn to them!

All clues for best brands/vendors welcome, recommendations with your experiences, and tips for techniques, for chip/kerbing resources plus general hand polishing very welcome and will be grarefully received.

I am also trawling this site for polishing threads.
