    Question Touch up Tools Tips Tricks with Needle and Syringe

    I am inquiring to see if anyone could write a guide using needles and syringes to repair rock chips. I recently watched Larry Kosilla’s latest video. (Best Paint Touch-Up Tools Tips and Tricks with Needle and Syringe) YouTube Larry is very meticulous in all of his techniques and this one is NO exception. So, I was wondering if anyone has done this to their car and how did it turn out. Was it easy? Difficult? Also was wondering if anyone that did use Larry Kosilla's method could you make a guide for all of us using his steps or steps you added or deleted. Thank you in advance ...

    You might want to take a look at Dr Color Chip, there are good videos in YT

    I am planning on trying it. I used Dr color chip in the past with ok results. I find Dr color chip a bit too runny for me. The trick from Larry seems to be more precise than previous methods.

    Not a write up but I used one this week for plastidip touch up and wood glue deep into a crack in a bench as well.

    Pretty easy

    Horizontal panels with the syringe or paint dropper is easy but what about vertical panels?
    How to deal with the paint running down the panel?

    Nope. I had one messed up spot above the door window. A tear from the tape/masking area bridging over. It was a super small spot no one would see. Perfect opportunity to test this method
