best auto detailing tips tag line

It's a jungle out there on the roads and car paint chips are a reality of life. Just like cars, paint chips come in many forms and sizes. As a car detailing professional, I can tell you that now you have more options than ever.

As a professional, I can also tell you that the right tool is often the key to superior results. This is also key for car paint scratch and chip repair. As car enthusiasts looking to enhance our cars, or someone looking to simply retain the value of your car, repairing the paint chips and scratches is a big step towards the overall beauty and value of your car.

The Difference is Always in the Details

As I am often quoted as saying, "The difference is all about the details." In this situation, what I am trying to get across to you is that at a casual observation you will consider the hassle too great, and the pay off too small to go through the trouble of repairing the car paint chips of your car. So let me speak from experience:

  • You simply don't realize how much all those tiny little paint chips detract from the beauty of your car.
  • You simply don't realize how much better your car will look by doing something as simple as filling and repairing those paint chips in your car's paint.
  • Many of you have tried the car touch-up paint from the dealership only to get poor results.
  • Most of you do not know of the latest paint chip and scratch repair kits available.

Speaking from Experience

While most people would recognize how a combination of the "good" kind of details enhance the overall look and value of your car, the combination of the "bad" kind of details has the opposite effect. Car paint chips, miscellaneous broken items, dull paint, dirty wheels, etc., etc., all combine to bring your cars beauty down; and down goes your love and concern for it. The cycle then starts, which only produces more of the same bad results. By taking time repairing the miscellaneous scratches, surface marks, and road rash, restore the beauty and value of your car, while at the same time restoring the love affair with your car!

Darren's Professional Tips

Since I work on so many cars each week and the question continually comes up from my customers, I do my best to help people maintain realistic expectations for their cars. So use this checklist in determining the best solution for you and your car:

  • If your car suffers from the road rash syndrome, use the Dr. ColorChip repair system.
  • If you have deep, all the way through to the metal, type of scratch that has an actual valley or some width to it which you could realistically lay some touch-up paint into, go with the Dr. ColorChip repair system.
  • If you have the very fine, hairline scratches that are individual scratches that you can either NOT catch an edge with your finger nail, or barely catch and edge with your finger nail, then either of the kits from Langka or 3M is your ticket to removing these type of scratches.
