I gave me car a good wash today and noticed many, many paint chips and scratches (no doubt from people who cant part or who walked by too close to my car). It is really a shame to see there is so much damage. (Damage here being relative because I only noticed these issues when cleaning the car looking for them, nevertheless they are annoying). Most of the paint chips can be fixed with a touch up pen (that I have ordered from Halfords) but the scratches would require smart repair. I do have one paint chip which is really bad in that it isn’t a complete chip; I can see the paint all pushed into the corner of the chip like a rolled up ball of foil. It’s still very small but that would have to be machine polished to smooth it out. I may look into getting some smart repairs done and then it covered with some protective ceramic coating but I don’t think the ceramic coating would have meant I didn’t get the chips. The only way would be PPF and I can’t afford to spend £2k on that. I did look into getting it and applying it myself but I think some touching up from me and smart repair on the other parts and some ceramic coating (after paint correction) will do the job). Also need to smart repair 3 of my alloys with kerbing. Below are some photos of the chips, but I also have several on my bonnet and side panels.
