As you can imagine, living and driving in London does mean your car will get the odd scratch, and my basic hatchback is no exception:

Fortunately, Chipex offered to let me test their simple three-step car paint touch-up system, and despite being an utter novice when it comes to car maintenance and care, I thought I’d give it a try.

It comes in one simple pack, which contains quite a few tools, cloths, glovesĀ and lotions of various sizes, but it’s all simply explained.

A quick check of the instructions, and I dove right into painting the multiple scratches away:

After twenty mintues of painting, twenty minutes of drying, and a quick buff, the results were amazing. The scratches no longer stuck out on the car, and you’d have to peer quite hard to see the scratches:

I could have spent more time on the buffing to even out the finish, but I was very satisfied with the results I got, considering it took less than an hour!
