It won't be perfect but then no paint repair will ever be 100% perfect. So unless you want to fork out for a respray, a touch up pen is about your only option. That said, a trained eye can even tell when a professional job has been done anyway.

'They can't charge that much'! I asked a place to paint a brand new bumper (I would supply the bumper) and I would fit it to the car. The cheeky sods quoted me £400+ so they were politely told to 'jog on'!

If you fill in with the chip repair kit, can I say that you want to really look very closely at the damaged area and remove any loose bits of paint that might lift off after a few weeks, the chip on your car may go bigger than it actually is now, but it will save you great stress as you look upon your car a month on and spot the repaired bit has cracked and looks worse.

Use a craft blade and carefully trim the chipped part of the paint at an angle, so you ONLY fill the damaged area and not the surrounding good paint! The times I've seen folk touching in chips is laughable as the fill the hole and slap paint over, until it looks like a gret big wart :blush:

Brother in law used a mobile company to have a chip repaired at his home, cost him £80.

Well....... It's all up to you mate!

Now if it was me, I'd carefully remove the damaged paint using a craft knife, then fill in the damaged bit with Davids Isopon filler, then spray the filled in area, leave for a few days, then wet flat the sprayed area and polish up.... you'd never see the repaired bit. I'd buy only genuine Ford aerosol spray paint for a really excellent colour match.

If u try with the touch up kit buy a artist brush like hobby craft u want like 000 brush it's just a really tiny brush what will make the job 100 times easier and it will come out better don't use halford brush the paint is alright but the brushes are difficult to hold.

Not that difficult! But if you've never dabbled in repairs it may sound daunting.
