If you’re searching for your cars ‘paint pen’.  Please stop right there!  Those paint pens are awful.  I’ve spent hundreds of hours fixing the damage they cause.  That’s no exaggeration.  I fix rock chips and scratches for a living.  I see those paint blobs the most often at car dealerships.  People will use paint pens to try to cover up blemishes so they won’t get dinged by the dealership when they return a car after a lease is over, or when they’re trying to sell it.  Paint blobs make your car look worse, not better.  Not only is it hard to use, the results are far from acceptable.

Paint pens in general are more for the dealerships and car manufacturers to sell as an additional source of income for them.  The appearance of your car is not of great concern.

The only method I’ve ever seen that really works well is Dr.Colorchip.  www.carpaintchiprepair.com. It’s the only paint system I use.  The Langka system is no different than traditional paint pens.

I’ve developed my only little tricks to get rid of paint blobs.  I’ll tell you here, but don’t tell anyone I told you.  lol.  I use the ‘pink juice’ that comes with the Dr.Colorchip paint system and put several drop on a folded t-shirt cloth, then add a few drops of acetone.  Don’t use other solvents, they WILL damage the clearcoat.  Then I gently rub out the paint blobs, and frequently wipe off the residue with a microfiber towel.  If you don’t want to buy the Dr.Colorchip paint system, just use the acetone, but wipe if off every few seconds and start over.  The darker the color of the car, the more likely the acetone will damage the finish.  Don’t leave it there for long.  Rub, then wipe.  Or just call me.  I’ll fix the paint blobs, fill the rest of the chips, and leave your car looking pretty damn fine!!

I have an exceedingly good reputation.  I work for many car dealerships, mostly high end dealerships, but also quite a few Hondas, Hyundais’, etc. I work for two museums, many car clubs, especially Porsche clubs, etc.

If you’re reading this and you belong to a car club in Southern California, give me a call and I’ll do a tech talk to your group.  Nobody does better work than I do.
