    Stone chips cover up?

    Ok so i have a few big chips i want to prevent from rusting.. got a touch up from BMW of the colour.. how should i apply this because i find you leave a bump if you just put it on.. can you put it on for say a minuite and wipe so it gives a straight line of paint?

    Any other tips for covering them?

    It doesn't have to be perfect but i want it better and protected.

    Cheers

    The trick is to apply this is a ultra fine artsists brush. just apply a tiny amount and build up the layers.

    Once you have built up just above the level of the surrounding paint, then allow it to fully dry.

    Then using a very small piece of Megs Unigrit 2500-3000 paper very lightly flatten the raised section until it is level. You really need to take care with this.

    The you can easily polish up the area using something like Meguiars Scratch X or better still a small bottle of Menzerna PO91L and a Ultimate German applicator.

    Yeah I fully understand that! Definately the key though is to ditch the brush they supply you and get a really fine one. It makes all the difference.
