I have a couple scratches and was going to touch them up. I have used Dr. Colorchip in the past on black/dark cars with great success. This was going to be a stuggle because Dr. Colorchip is not that great on scratches (from what I hear) and is not great on light color cars/trucks).
Well I decided to order a kit anyways and test it out myself. All and all, it's crap on scratches. The area that needs to be filled is too narrow for the paint to stick... I don't have pictures, but I put the paint on for 5 min, removed the smudges with the blending solution... pulled the paint out from the scratch, ok, needs longer curing time... did the same steps, waited 1 hour, pulled the paint out... directions say can be left on for 2 hours... so I did that.. still pulled the paint out from the scratch. So I was thinking, I can let this sit for 2+ hours and wetsanded it flat, but then what would be the point of using it? So I don't like how it works on scracthes. I have a few test vehicles lined up to see how it works on silver paint with actual rock chips....
In the meantime here are the pics of how I fixed the scratches the only way I know how:
Scratches were prepped with a little sanding and degreasing. Then finished with more wetsanding to level out and buffing to remove wetsand marks.
Here's what I'm working with:
Scratch #1 and #2 (I put the arrows in because of the low quality of the pics... sorry)
(this one I forgot the arrow, but you can see #1 all the way to the right of the picture about 3 inches down from the top)
Scratches filled (they were taped on both sides, but I took the top layer off to show the "mound of paint"):
Finished (the paint is silver so the scratches will be noticible, and I knew that, I just wanted to get something in there to prevent rust.... but it ended up looking a little better then I expected because from about 4 feet away or more, you can't see them at all at any angle! The picture were taken from only a couple feet away)
#1 and #2:
