I highly recommend Phoenix Custom in Brampton for paint work as I've had scratch repair done there.

My husband had a fender repaint and they sent him home with the leftover paint for touch-ups.

They're located on Eastern Ave., off Rutherford.

Seriously order a kit from dr colour chip, it super easy and gonna be cheaper than any paint work. Plus it looks damn good.

I have a Dr Colorchip kit sitting in my basement, I hope it doesnít have an expiration date as Iím planning to use it in the spring.

Have you personally used it? Iíve see their YouTube videos as well, but heard different results from actual customers.
Share the application technique you used if it worked well for you.

I don't know about expiration date either, I used mine 2 years ago, got rid of the road chips on my hood, rear arch flares and front bumper. Also made scratches on my doors disappear. I found that if its a big chip (the size of your pinky nail or bigger) the paint won't stick very well, if at all.
If you have to do an area with a shitload of chips like your bumper, doing each chip one by one isn't gonna cut it. So dipping the tip of a rolled up paper towel in the paint and smearing it over a large area works too and it's faster.
There's a thread on here with my before and after pictures, I can't for the life of me find these pictures right now but if I do I'll post them.
