Just a couple of months into ownership of my Sonic Red RC I've collected a stone chip on the bonnet. Because of the 5 stage paint process an invisible spot repair isn't possible. Lexus have quoted £1100 for a complete bonnet and wing blend respray. Not an unexpected sum but worth spending on one...
Today I bought some Diamond Silver touch up, for a recent chip on the front of my E Coupe, thinking, it can't be that hard to make a half decent job of it, big mistake. So what is the correct procedure for what I thought would be a reasonably simple job? Any advice on DIY will be gratefully...
I'm based in Nottingham. Looking for a good Chips away type company to touch up a couple of stone chips on my 3 month old C63s AMG. Tried Paint Techniqs in the past on the wives car as well as chipsaway and not happy with the finish. Any ideas?
I had a stone hit my windscreen the other day and caused a small stone chip,
not where it matters, but got Autoglass to repair the chip and don't know why i bothered. It doesn't look any different to me, i realise that it was never going to be perfect, but i don't think it was worth £10 and the...
So my wife was a little unlucky today having a stone hit the windscreen of our sl500 no sooner she got home this went from a chip to a crack so we have someone coming out today to replace the screen on our car insurance.
Should we be unduly worried with a replacement screen as they are aware...

Hi, new member here.
I have a 2015 C63 and I have noticed multiple small stone chips on the front sills
extending about halfway the length of the doors. Is it because if the tyre width sitting beyond the bottom of the front wings?. Would appreciate any thoughts.
Hiya all, washing my car this morning I came across quite a nasty stone chip, will this be an easy DIY jobbie? Only it's stands proud and will need a bit of felting to make neat,
Was thinking a paint pen and I've got an abrasive pen for doing this type of repair.
Also is this part made of...

It's a black...

My E320 still has it's original windscreen after thirteen years, and consequently has picked up scores of very minor stone chips. None of them are large enough for the standard chip repair, but I would like to find a way to polish them out if it's possible.
Has anyone tried this or is it a...
Hi Guys I am picking up my new C63 125 in diamond white but the car has 3-4 stone chips through the lacquar only. does anyone know or recommend someone who can fix these properly without the cheap old touch up method or respray?.
Bonnet littered with stone chips. It's an old 03 C180 coupe in a lovely red colour. The chips are very visible. I've gotten myself some touch up paint made to the exact colour. Is this a job that can be done myself ? Any tips for a good job/finish ?
Can anyone recommend a smart repairer in Hert's/Bed's area for a couple of stone chips on my ML's bonnet. I have tried ChipsAway and after chasing twice they eventually came round but recommended a full bonnet respray (yes this is for just 2 small stone chips). I have also contacted Revive three...
my 2003 obsidian black C180k that was recently acquired has a lot of stone chips on the hood. Can someone recommend a reasonable bodyshop in the Bradford/ Leeds area please? The one I went to said the whole front end needs doing to ensure color match. :s
I am not too confident using...
