Well, looks like I am going to try to repair a rock chip. At least I am considering doing it but have never done this before. In the past I would just fill a chipped spot with paint and stop; this time I would like to level the repair and blend it with the paint so it will not be noticeable.
I plan on following the procedure I found on the Better Car Care web site.
The chip is in black paint and about 1/16" diameter. As you would expect the chip exposes the bare metal. All the paint around the chip is tight.
Any suggestions or tips on how to do this would be appreciated.
Leveling the paint after applying it is the part that I need help with.
Since it a small area should I use a sanding block or sanding paper?
What grit should I use?
How big an area around the chip do I need to work?
