Can Classic Car Colours paint harm my car?
We have never had that happen. We do suggest a trial in a non-obvious spot first.
Do paint chips need to be sanded?
No. Our system is meant to put paint in the chips
When would the paint damage be too much for a Classic Car Colours kit?
Any metal damage like dents and disfiguration Chips larger than your baby finger, scratches and larger chips will not disappear so you may want to talk to a body shop if you want perfection.

Yes. Our kits are designed so that with a little practice anyone can achieve professional results.
What other blemishes can a Classic Car Colours kit fix?
Our kits are meant for paint chips and minor scratches but also can repair edges of inner rocker panels where a small area of paint has rubbed off.
Do I need to buy special tools for paint chip repair?
No, the car needs to be clean so if you have a bucket, sponge, towel or chamois you are all set!
How will the repair look?
From several feet away you should not see the smaller chips but if you look close enough you will find them sealed with paint and no blob or overspray around them. Larger chips are more obvious but the repair is far superior to dabbing sticks and you are still preserving the integrity of your paint at much less cost than a body shop.
How long does the repair last?
We have seen repairs that are several years old that are still fine.
How long does the paint last in the bottle?
If your paint goes hard/solid within 60 days we will replace it for you at no charge. If it starts to thicken you can add a drop or two of lacquer thinners to the bottle, replace lid, and shake well. This will thin the paint down so you can use it.
Will your paint work on my metallic colour?
Yes, we have had different forms of metallics since the 1950s.
Does it fix scratches?
Yes, they will diminish but not totally disappear. Our paint will help protect your car from rust developing in the chips.
