FAQs

ChipFixx repairs individual chips. Smaller paint chips and road rash should be very hard to spot once fixed. If you have a few large ones you will know where they are and will probably be able to spot them. Sometimes a body shop is the best way to go if your car is very severely chipped or you want a like-new result and don’t mind spending that kind of money. We offer a low cost alternative to a body shop.

The air temperature needs to be at least 10C (50F) in order for the paint to dry quickly. If you have access to heated indoor space with good lighting, you can perform your repair there if it is too cold outside.

If your paint starts to thicken you can add a few drops of thinners to it and stir well with a toothpick etc.

If your vehicle was made before 1980 or you have a motorcycle or a boat, please email us at ChipFixx with the year, make and model so we can check that we can mix the desired paint for you.

Please note we cannot replace any paint more than 60 days after purchase  The paint itself is good for about 6 months.  If it starts to thicken you can add a drop or two of thinners and shake or stir well.  If it goes solid, it cannot be thinned down and cannot be used.   Please use your ChipFixx Kit before 60 days for best results.

If your vehicle is not listed here, please contact us and we will check to see if we can mix your paint.

How hard is this to do??

The process doesn’t take any special skill, the kits are designed for easy home use. Its as simple as clean, brush on paint and level with Cleaner Leveler Solution. If you can wash a car you can get professional touch up results with a ChipFixx kit.

How will it look?

Small chips will virtually disappear and should not be visible from a couple of feet away. Larger chips are easier to see afterward but the ChipFixx process, which lets you put paint only in the chip, is still much neater than dabbing sticks. Painting panels is the only way to make chips totally disappear and this costs 10 times as much as a ChipFixx kit.

How long will the repair last?

We have seen cars with repaired chips many years after they were done and the paint is still holding up fine.

How long does it last in the bottle?

We guarantee the paint to be usable for 60 days. We cannot replace any paint more than 60 days after purchase. The paint itself is good for about 6 months.  If it starts to thicken you can add a drop or two of thinners and shake or stir well.  If it goes solid, it cannot be thinned down and cannot be used.   Please use your ChipFixx Kit before 60 days for best results.

Will it work on metallic colours?

Most cars these days have metallic or pearl paint colours and we deal with these on a daily basis. Some shades work better with the ChipFixx system than others but all should provide satisfactory results.

Can you match tri-coats?

Tri-coat paint colours are achieved by first painting the car with a solid base coat such as red or white, then several coats of an appropriate pearl paint are applied after which clear coat is sprayed on. We have colour chips on file for most of these colours and can do a satisfactory job of matching these shades.

Will it fix scratches?

Light scratches that do not go far into the clearcoat of your car’s paintjob can often be removed with our Scratch Remover. Deeper scratches that will hold paint can be treated with a ChipFixx kit like a large paint chip. Nothing short of painting a panel will make deep scratches disappear but our system offers substantial improvement and rust protection.

How do I find my paint code?

Click on our Paint Code Locator at the top of every page and it will take you to a diagram which will assist you in finding your paint code and you can enter the make, model and year of your car. You can use our new Paint Code Database to help you find the paint code for your vehicle. This link is at the top of every page.

Does it work on plastic bumpers?

Yes, you may not get as smooth a repair as on metal because plastic tends to have more rough edges around chips but you will see marked improvement.

Can anyone do this?

Yes! ChipFixx is user friendly, doesn’t require special skills and if you can follow instructions you should get a good result. We are here to help so don’t be afraid to call or email.

What if I make a mess?

That is easy to fix, just use the Cleaner Leveler to remove the mess and repeat the process.
