    CHIPS!! How do I get rid??

    I've got the usual small chips in the body work of my Astra SXI. What is the best thing to use to get rid of the chips? I've looked into the 'chip sticks' etc, but when they say red, it's not the red of my car. Which is more flame red. Any tips???

    you need some paint, halfords do it it a small pot with a tiny brush which is ideal, but iv heard bad things about the colour match

    yeah I used Halfords touchup paint and wasn't impressed with colour match. i'm colourblind and even I could see it didn't match well!

    If u want touch up kits - vauxhall is the place to go

    let me know the colour code (from your drivers door VIN sticker - bottom left eg Z282 etc) and I'll get u the part number for the touch up kit. Costs a few quid more than halfords but match will be perfect

    Just dont use the brush or youll fluck it up!

    apply paint with cocktail stick or sumthing miniscule like that - theres a guide either on here or generally on tinterweb somewhere so get googling.
