    Hi guys


    I've had a few of these kits in the past and this is going to sound like a stupid question but......


    From what I've read there should be a metal tube to allow you to fill in small chips, The problem is i cant find it......lol

    I know that if you unscrew it then you have a fine brush, and if you pull the lid off its meant to reveal the this tube... But if i pull the lid off all i end up with is a hole and the metal tube stays in the lid.


    Like i said I've got a few of these kits and they are all the same.


    Any ideas or am i missing something ?

    Always buy your touch up kit's from maindealer.. Use a cocktail stick if need be.

    No probs mate ;)


    I have tried using a tooth pick (cocktail stick) but the trouble is that the paint seems to instantly dry on the stick and not come off onto the paintwork....lol
