Just made my order with Dr Colorchip

I'll hopefully get it in a week or so.

Once I try it I'll come back with a detailed report. I'm *really* looking forward to fixing the stone chips and scratches!

I couldn't find a color code anywhere on my car but both Dr Colorchip and a member on this forum with a black LS assured me that the code was 8555.

Yeah, thanks for posting a link to the thread where that info was "stickied".

I ordered the most expensive kit as I have a feeling I'm going to be repairing a lot of stone chips with this crappy paint. At least I can sleep easy at night knowing that all those chips are a sign that I'm doing my part for the environment! lol

I would be interested in how this works as well. It seems I have at least one new one each time I get out of the car...

My dad has it for his '62 white Porsche 356B. He really likes it.

We'll see how it works for my '10 black Camaro

I was contemplating the Dr. Color Chip until I read the smaller kit only covers about 12 chips. I went to the dealer and grabbed a thing of touch up paint. I have a at least 12 chips on my front bumper. Gonna try it out. Anyone have suggestions for method of application to prevent it from globbing up?

That's why I ordered the Dr Colorchip...the brush applicator on the GM touchup bottle is shite and the pen tip didn't work at all.
