    Re: How to use the Dr. ColorChip Paint Chip Repair Systems

    Dr. Color Chip is an excellent product. I've used it on my Obsidian Black Infiniti with great results. Easy to use. Just watch Mike's videos first.

    Re: How to use the Dr. ColorChip Paint Chip Repair Systems

    I've tried the Dr Colorchip 4 separate times now, 2 on my own vehicles and 2 on a customer's. I wanted to incorporate this more into the business, but it seems like it takes so much longer to clean up afterwards than it makes out to be. What I expected to take 30 minutes ends up taking 2 hours. Every single spot seems to take 5-10 minutes just to clean up with the SealAct. I have patience, and I can eventually get it all off, from all the videos on it, it seems like it should be faster. I'm already putting more than the quarter sized spot of SealAct on the cloth, and I'm trying not to put much pressure and keeping my hand flat to keep the pressure spread out. I have a lot of road rash on my bumper and tried out the big squeegee method, using the dropper to spread a line of paint and it looked great, but I only did about a 10x10 area and it took me over a half hour to clean it all off. I probably only let it sit for about 5 minutes based on my past experiences, hoping it'll be easier to remove if I don't let it sit for too long. But it didn't seem any easier.

    Does this seem about average when everyone else uses it, or any recommendations? I've tried smearing it as thin as possible but it dries pretty fast and leaves some high spots.
