Paint chip

So I got a small chip in my paint today, I'm not so concerned about the look now as much as I'm concerned about the paint flaking off and it spreading, anyone have experience with this? Solutions that don't require a body shop and aren't noticeable??

The chip will not spread , you can get some dupli color touch up paint and some clear to fill in the chip

Yes or at any dealership , all you need is the paint code , it's located on the vin sticker inside your door , you will see the letters pnt and the code is usually right under it : example: PNT

Re: Paint chip

Looks like you have a black Mustang if so your paint code is UA

Okay so I checked out the duplicolor stuff and I found the color I need, what's the deal with the clear stuff, do I need it to make it look good, or does it protect it

It serves two purposes , 1 to protect the repair from failure, and 2 to blend in with the existing clear coat for an almost invisible repair

The dupli color brand is fine , just take your time and use small amounts of paint at a time, don't overfill the chip

The only place I know where to get it is from the website. Just select the color and order the amount you need. Prices range from $39-$59

2011 Mustangs:click here
2012 Mustangs: click here
2013 Mustangs:click here

I see nothing but good reviews for it on Autopia. Not sure how tri-coat would look, though...but according to pics, not too shabby. If you can get road rash to disappear on a pearl w/o a noticeable diff, that's good stuff.

Keep in mind, a tad of overfill on the clear and a buffer wheel will make the fix totally disappear.
Good luck

Dr Colorchip is amazing. It works as advertized. I have used it on two black cars. Far better than a glob of dupli. 'touch up' paint. It lasts a couple years before it solid/dries up in the bottle. Then just order more of your color, the bottle of their sealant lasts for years. I have to have some around when needed now. I am spoiled being able to address those chips correctly.

Good thread, I have a two inch area of clear coat that peeled on the front of my 13 GT/CS with 2400 miles on it. Am waiting for the dealer to fix it, but will proceed as advised if they fail.
Thanks
