Just wanted to say thank you. I am extremely satisfied with you product. I used it on two chips on my 2023 Ford F-150. The YouTube video instructions were extremely helpful. Wonderful product!

PS your product is awesome! I gave it to the guy who I work with for dents dings and touch up on my other car, and he was floored on how smooth it lays down and the color match. Speaking of color match it was 10x better than Porsche’s own paint kit.

Just wanted to let you know I did my 2016 Mitsubishi outlander Octane Blue Pearl with Dr. Colorchip and the car came out amazing. You can not tell were I touch it up. You would have to look at it from 4 inches to see it. You product rates a 5 star and the direction is excellent. Now I will tackle the old touch up paint the doesn’t even match the color. Great product. I did the old touchup on your recommendation with acetone and liquid wax and it did a great job. Also after using your great product the car came out amazing can not tell it was touchup. I would like you to use my testimony to tell people how your product is great to use and easy. And by taking your time it comes out amazing. Don’t rush a good thing.

First time customer. I LOVE the product. Worked well for me. Here’s a link to my review on the Ford Bronco forum:
You guys should consider maybe joining the forum or becoming a sponsor or something to offer a Bronco discount code. The new Ford Bronco is NOTORIOUS for getting rocks thrown up by the factory Goodyear Territory Sasquatch tires. lots of paint chips there. Thanks!

Hey folks. Just wanted to reach out and let you know how happy I am with the product. My use case isn’t exactly one you advertise, but the results are good and a hair cheaper than a repaint!

I have a 75 Cadillac Coupe DeVille with original lacquer paint. Despite being garage kept it’s whole life, it has begun to show fine cracking in a few areas along the front of the car. I read that this is relatively common with old lacquer paint, but found no advice on how to minimize the appearance outside of a repaint.
Though the “after” picture seems to indicate the cracks are all but gone, they still remain somewhat noticeable in person.

Hey Dr,
Used one of your kits on a 2019 Audi Q8, 2 weeks ago, prior to installing a coating (I run a detailing business)… and all I can say is WOW!! Ive wanted to add chip repair as an upsell, but couldn’t justify price and results.
Not only was I impressed… I set expectations with my client, and they were beyond blown away!!

That being said, I am now adding this to my list of services, and adding it to my website, maybe even run some ads.
Definitely putting this on my YouTube channel. And already shared to my socials.

Do you offer “Volcano Black Metallic” for my Alpha Romeo? I have ordered your product for several other cars … GAME CHANGER within the touch-up industry. Thank you for that and thank you for looking into the paint color.

I could not find anywhere to write a review, but I wanted to let you guys know how happy I am with your product! Paint matched great, was super easy to use for someone with zero painting skills, and came in a timely manner. I don’t have some super expensive vehicle, but I try my best to take pride in my vehicle. I’m glad I gave DrColorchip a chance. Getting rid of all my rock chips has made my truck look so much better.

I will for sure be recommending you guys to friends, and multiple groups, and forums online.

Thanks again,

I have a 2014 Camaro in mint condition but the right front bumber was pick marked from a NJ DOT truck throwing out salt. I skeptically purchased your product and watched the training videos.

After 2 hours work-what a difference! You have to put your nose against it to see the pick marks which are now blended into the paint.

Hope all is well! We’re really enjoying the Dr. ColorChip touch up system. After 40 years in the body shop world, and having touched up literally hundreds of cars, I had no idea I was doing it wrong all those years! The system really is everything your said it was. So far, our customers are pretty darn impressed.

I just wanted to drop you a line to mention once again I had great uccess using your product. I discovered Dr. ColorChip years ago looking for a solution to scratches and door dings on a previous vehicle and have used it sevral times since (different vehicles). This time around I wasn’t sure it would work because the scratches were down to the primer. After a couple of hours applying layers of paint and sealing the damage is no longer detectable. I also wanted to thank Lisa when I called about a minor issue with my ordershe took care of it immediately.

“Can Dr. ColorChip really allow anyone to fix paint chips?”

“Can you make your paint look good as new for just $59.95? That’s the promise ofDr. ColorChip, makers of a clever system for chip repair that claims to outperform traditional touch-up paint and leave a nearly undetectable, permanent repair in just a fewminutes.

Sounds too good to be true, right? We wanted to try it for ourselves, so we ordered its Squirt ’N Squeegee kit color matched to our Honda Element.”

Hi Joe,

We met at the Rennsport Dragon Rally event at Fontana Village Resort. You shared with me the “shoe polish” technique to fix a bad case of roadrash on my black Porsche 911. I spent the afternoon applying your product and the result is sooo good. Thank you for sharing your expertise. I am ordering another Road Rash kit to correct other areas on the car.

Again, thank you for the help. It really made my day.

After I broke my radio antenna, I got careless during the repair, and took some paint chips off the surrounding trim plate. I tried a competitor’s water-based solution, but like the product, the money I spent was water down the drain. Then I stumbled upon your product.

Consider me a believer. While the repair isn’t perfect, you have to be about six inches from it to see any difference in the finish at all, and now that the plate is re-installed, it’s practically invisible!

Thank you for saving me a lot of frustration.

1996 Nissan 300ZX Turbo 18,xxx original miles - DN1 Cobalt Green Pearl

I still listen to re-runs of NPR’s Car Talk. When callers give the hosts, Click and Clack, a particularly vexing question, they often answer, “You need to go to your automotive shop and find a bottle of something that says miracle.” This is all said in jest, but I say in seriousness, “Dr Colorchip is a miracle product.” Over the years, I’ve had a host of rattlers that I’ve patched up, bondoed up, and touched up. The most notable being a 76 Datsun B210 hatchback that I referred to as a two man bobsled. Winters were exciting in that little baby. Fast forward many years, and I have a few more nickels and dimes, and I bought a low mileage otherwise like new Aston Martin in Arizona, which must be the paint chip capitol of the world. I knew it had some paint chips, but it wasn’t until I detailed it that I realized it had a ton of chips, road rash, eczema, you name it. You watch ads for all manner of products and say to yourself, how much of this is pure BS, and how much might be a tad bit true. I watched Dan McCool, the owner of Dr Colorchip, do videos, and said to myself, this stuff looks like it works and this guy is not selling me any BS. He tells you it’s going to look much better but not be a new spray job. Honesty is a wonderful thing amid a never ending landslide of nonsense. Any way. I get the box from Dr Colorchip. I say to myself, how are you going to screw this thing up. You’ve got a beautiful car, don’t make it worse. I wonder. Does this Sealact really take off the excess paint? I start with a tiny chip on the roof. I do what Dan says. One pass, it’s gone. I go to a bigger one. One pass, not bad, two passes, pretty good, three passes, jeez, I can barely see it. I go to the front and there are so many tiny chips, I decide to use the shoe polish method. It took me three or four passes, but it looks so much better.
I looked for a miracle, and I found it. Thanks, Dan. If you’re ever in Boston, I ‘ll take you for a ride and scare the beejeesus out of you in my Aston Martin.

ASTON MARTIN and others ...

Just wanted to express my satisfaction with the outstanding service I received from drcolorchip in obtaining touchup paint for my 75 Alfa Romeo Spider. I had great succes with their product in the past touching up minor chips and road rash on a Porsche Boxster and, although my Spider has no chips or roadrash, I wanted to be prepared for the inevitable.

My car is finished in paint code 103, Avorio (ivory), and I placed an online order under #103 Ivory, although it did not specify that it was specifically for an Alfa Romeo. When it arrived it appeared too dark, so I sent an email and received a prompt reply. They asked for details on the car, as well as some photos of the paint. Two days later I received notification that their paint technician had mixed a new bottle for me and that it had ready been sent by courier – all at no additional cost!

It was no doubt my mistake in not contacting them with details prior to placing an order and yet they went out of their way to promptly rectify the problem. Service like this is, in my experience, virtually unheard of in this day and age. Kudos to Lisa and the rest of the crew at drcolorchip!

1975 Alfa Romeo Spider 103 Ivory

I just wanted to tell you that I received my touch up kit yesterday and applied it to the vehicle today. The vehicle is a lease and will be returned later in January but the preliminary inspection revealed that I was not responsible for any damage fees. I did see a few small chips so I decided to repair them. It was a great time to try your product before using it on my other vehicles that I own. The process couldn’t have been easily and the results were beyond my expectation. The chips are still there but you can’t see them. The best part was this was the Pearl White that Nissan uses and since it it an multi spray to create the pearl effect, I was warned it might not match perfectly but would be closer than any other system. I agree. It’s really about expectations. The chip will still be there but if you can’t see it, great.

Thank you for a great product. I will be using it again on other vehicles.

Thanks, used your product on my 2019 corvette grand sport. The front wheels pepper the leading edge of the rear quarter pane especially on the passenger side from gravel at the edge of mountain roads. I was horrified! Must have been 50 small chips. Dr. Colorchip made them disappear. It was amazing!!! So now I will use on my other cars. Thank you for a great product!

John H. - Greensville, SC - September 2020

2016 Ford Transit - UV Blazer Blue

I just wanted to forward my sincerest thank you for the product you created. I had around, I’d say, 100-200 small rock chips along my black F-150. After looking into your product, the price was high. However, WELL worth it. 1000% better than the pens that are $15, you get what you pay for. I’m so thankful because as you can imagine, a truck with that many rock chips is incredibly hideous. Looks amazing now.

2017 Ford Mustang - CI Grabber Blue

I ordered touch up paint for my car. Hundreds and hundreds of chips on the bumper and hood of my 2014 E350. I took my time, doing small sections at a time. Took a couple days. I read and saw some horror stories of people who did the whole bumper at once and then couldn’t get it to wipe off with the solvent. But I did a small section at a time and mine just looks awesome. I am so thankful I tried it. thanks so much

2014 Mercedes E Class - 890 Lunar Blue Metallic

I am so glad I trusted what I saw on your YouTube channel and decided to order my kit to repair the chips on my 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA250. I noticed a lot of small chips (around 40 on the front bumper AFTER I bought the car and was a bit nervous that I’d have to get it repainted. I saw a YouTube video highly recommending your product and when I applied it to my car, I was nervous until I saw the results! WOW! Standing less than a foot away, I cannot tell that their were chips. Even up close I have a very difficult time identifying where the chips were. I have to touch the surface to truly know. I am so pleased with the results!!!

I don’t usually do reviews, and I’m not easily impressed but this stuff worked so good, and its so easy, I have to tell you guys thanks for making this product. What else can I say… IT WORKS!

After being told about this product by a local tint shop owner, I decided to order it. I have a 2009 Corvette that had a lot of chips on the front bumper cover. They are gone. I am partially amazed…and very very happy with the product. It took a little practice to get the feel for it, but it is very easy to get good results…I probably fixed around 50-60 chips. The car looks sooooo much better. Thanks for making such a great product!

1990 300SL - DB587 Cabernet Red Metallic

I bought my 1990 300SL-24 in February The attributes were model, low mileage, and good history. The car saw a lot of highway driving, which was good for wear and tear, but the front of the car was like it was hit with buckshot. I’ve owned 10 Mercedes and have done much restoration work. I’ve been using Dr ColorChip for about 20 years and always have some on hand. I spent 4 days doing touchup on the SL. There was 200+ rock chipsbut you’d be hard-pressed to find them now. My favorite tool is the squeegee. I find it great at filling in the chips and scratches. Most chips can be done with one application. The larger ones take 2 or 3 applications. The key ispatients and keep at it until it’s right. Thanks for your products!

2009 Porsche 911 Turbo - 041/741/A1 Black

This is one of the first products I have used that worked exactly as advertised. My motorcycle is black so I was very skeptical. But after watching several videos and customer reviews that were very positive, I ordered the kit in my color. What a surprise! The smaller dings, one swipe and gone. The larger chips one or two more. Two were on top of the tank and you absolutely cannot see where they were. BUY THIS PRODUCT!


Just a quick thank you… your product worked exactly as advertised on my car. Great product, many thanks!


I’ve been a real gear-head for 45 years and have always tried to keep my cars looking sharp. I think I’ve tried just about every paint touchup technique or product to hit the market since 1965. Absolutely none have produced the extraordinary results produced by Dr ColorChip. The color match is perfect and the ease of application is amazing. I purchased a kit for my Ford Ranger. It was so great so I ordered another for my Porsche. That one was equally impressive. Today, I ordered one for my Audi. You guys deserve some kind of industry award! Best system in the world!


Dealerships had better realize what a pain in the ass “touch up” paint is to get: 3 weeks to receive it, no instructions on the best way to apply, markup on paint is way overboard.

Your product is like “painting for dummies”. It makes the process so much smoother.

Get out there and advertise!!


I want to thank you guys for a super product…I have a 2008 Z06 that i road race some and drive the crap out of the rest of the time. I have about 35,000 highway miles on the car and have gone thru two sets of tires so far. Three sets of rears.

My front tires throw rocks and grit onto the rear fender just in front of the rear tires. That area looked like it had been shot with a 12 gauge shotgun, looked like crap….for car shows, I would rubblack shoe polish into the chips trying to hide the road rash….

I decided to try your product, I thought, what the heck, for a few bucks, I will take the gamble. I am so impressed that I have been telling all the car guys about how well your product works.

Proud of you guys, you did good….


I ordered the “road rash” kit for my Orient Blue 2004 BMW 330Cic a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday was finally a great day to do the job.

Being in the car business and seeing what I would normally expect, I was hopeful that it would make my car better from the numerous stone chips that we get in the New England winters. In addition, the roads are falling apart here, so there is a lot of gravel and sand that also gets kicked up.

After about 4 fours of precise work and following the directions, the results are truly amazing. I am a professional in the used car business and to tell you the truth, I’ll be damned if I can tell where the chips were.

I still have some work to do and will be ordering a smaller kit soon.

I appreciate you having a product that is far more than is promised, extremely prompt delivery and a perfect paint match.

All the best and THANK YOU!!!


Sales Manager - Portsmouth Ford Used Car Center

I recently finished touching up my 2005 Lexus ES 330 with your kit, and the results are superb! So good, in fact, that I was able to install an Invisible Shield 3M clear bra, and the underlying finish looks new! The color match for my paint (Garnet Black Pearl) was absolutely perfect.

You folks have the best product and system available, period!


I am thoroughly impressed, not only with your product, but with your customer service (which, admittedly, is a pet peeve of mine). I could not be more satisfied with the product and your personal service. Know that I will definitely share my experience with my many internet contacts within the Mustang community.

I was able to use the product on a couple of chips on my Mustang’s hood and it works exactly as described in your ads. These first couple of ‘fills’ were a test, to develop my technique as much as it was to test the product. I can’t wait to fill in the rest and finally clean up the front of my beloved Mustang. The rest of it, every inch, is as close to factory fresh as one might imagine. It is a driver though…so the front has its fair share of chips.


2004 Ford Mustang Mach 1

I got my repair kit and tried it on my beautiful and meticulously maintained Porsche Cayman. I am impressed with what a nice clean job it does repairing the unavoidable stone chips I have gotten on the car. The car is cobalt blue metallic and stone chips really stand out. I have tried other products previously on other cars but they usually leave a disturbed looking area around the repair. With your kit, after the repair is dry a light buffing is all it takes to make the fix hard to see.

Thank you for making my baby Porsche look pretty again.


I wanted to thank you for your product- it’s a lifesaver! We had recently placed an order for our 2001 Mazda Miata and my husband documented our experience on

Your saved us from having to get our car repainted, so the least we could do is help spread the word. Also looking forward to receiving the kit for my Acura CL that I just ordered (below). We will use your products on all of our cars from now on and will recommend them to anyone in need. Thanks again!!


Driving in Houston, Texas wound up ruining the front of my black Mazdaspeed 3. It made me sick every time I looked at it – only 2 years old and it was peppered with road rash. I take great pride in how my cars look so this was a condition that had to be resolved. I bought your product and it saved my car. The results are fantastic! You will soon be receiving an order for my wife’s new F150 as it is already in need of some Dr.Colorchip time. Thank you for making such a good product, it truly is a car fanatics’ dream.


I bought one recently to try it out on my car. There’s no better way to say how much I like the ease of use of this product than to put in another order for my wife’s minivan. It was definitely as easy to use as advertised on your website.


I touched up my ’03 LeMans blue beast today and i was very happy with the results. Most of my chips are tiny road rash on the front of the hood and mirrors. The application was easy with a soft t shirt and the included pre fast liquid and cloth took off all excess paint. I was a little tentative on the first areas so I’ll go back over it but quite a big difference and worth the price vs body shop.

Small scratches that one can feel with fingernail also covered up well. I had one deep chip which i just went over 3 or 4 times and it came out smooth. The nice thing about this stuff was there was no blobbing, just paint smooth surface of new paint. I did not take any before shots so I have nothing to show.


Hello, I recently purchased a kit from you for a 1995 BMW 530i in Orient Blue. The product is fantastic, attached is a photo of the end product. All I can say is before I started, it looked like someone shot my hood with a shotgun.


Good morning. I previously made an order for a 2011 Evolution octane blue chip fix for my car and I have to say I am blown away by how great the product works. I have been promoting it on my instagram page.

Thank you in advance.


Great stuff! Easy to apply and it looks great.


I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical as to whether your product would work as well as the claims, but I was pleasantly surprised. The procedure couldn’t be any easier. Not much work for great results, especially with multiple applications. All that and great customer service – the perfect combination.

Good luck with your business.


I wish I had of taken good before and after pictures….! So far, I have made my 94 MB SL500, 99 MB SLK230, and my newest addition, 2003 Jag XK8 all go from road-rashed, rock chipped front ends to three beautifully detailed automobiles. What a discover Dr. ColorChip was for me. I am your best advertisem*nt in the area. I am not too far from thinking about doing this for others in my spare time. It has been very rewarding to me and my detail shop wants to send cars to me as well as a few car dealers and my friends. I must say I went almost overboard on my cars trying to get everything perfect. Your three foot rule should be more than sufficient to most and everyone I have shown my results to has been blown away.

Thank you for providing a great product that actually woks.


I’ve tried a few of the other chip repair systems and Dr. Color Chip has given me the best results. I’m very picky about how my cars look and when I used “the doctor” on my Mazda MX-5, the results were really good. Nothing will ever be factory paint but as long as there are stones on roads and people with shopping carts, the doctor will be in my garage.


Thanks! I know my brother will appreciate the kit as much as I have mine (Jaguar Racing Green for my 2004 XJ8 and Grand Prix White for my 1988 Porsche 928S4). You have a fabulous product!


Thank you for your amazing product! I wish I had taken before and after pictures because the results were quite dramatic!

I just purchased a used VW Jetta that had a serious case of Road Rash on the hood and bumper. I was a bit skeptical about the paint sticking to the bare metal, but I followed the instructions and the results were much better than I had hoped! The color match was *perfect* and those large chips have all but disappeared. I used the Tandem Paint brush to paint the plastic front bumper along with a lint free cloth. The abraded plastic now looks shiny and new! In fact, the color match was a much better than the paint pens we were sold at a VW dealership.

Thank you again for such a great product. I wish you every success.


I just wanted to say that I used your basic paint touchup kit this past weekend w/ excellent results. I have a vintage Porsche that “had” some road rash on the front painted bumper and lower area of the hood. Your touch-up paint process gave me flawless results. I can’t even tell where I fixed the paint it worked so well. I was skeptical but am totally sold on your product. I recommended your product to all the members on the Porsche website/club I am a member of and plan on purchasing two more kits from your company for my daily driver car and my wife’s car.


I bought a kit to use on my 2007 Mercedes SL550. I was a little nervous trying to touch up the paint on my car. I just used it and am amazed at the results. I had a small but noticeable chip right next to the license plate. I followed the directions and in less than 5 minutes the chip was gone – you can’t even tell there was ever a chip there or that any touch up had ever been done. My only regret is that I did not take a “before” picture so I could include that plus an “after” picture to show just how wonderful this product is! Your product definitely exceeded my expectations.


I recently purchased your product for my 2002 Porsche Boxster (lapis blue). Like many who use your product, my daily commute involves highway travel that exposes the paint on my car to a constant assault of gravel and other road debris that no degree of caution can prevent. In the past, I used conventional touch-up paint to repair this type of damage. The only results were very visible repairs and paint on my hands. I used your product this past weekend and was amazed. I am throwing away my tube of factory touch-up paint. Thanks for making such a great product!


Thanks for the quick response and fulfillment! The product is incredible! I’m taking the car to an auction tomorrow, and because of your product, I should be able to get thousands more than otherwise!

Please feel free to use me as a referral. Your products, and your service, are impeccable!


Two weeks ago I ordered a touch-up kit for my 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. The paint color is Dark Forest Green.

There are (were) some dings, surface scratches and chips in the paint from nine years of use. I applied your paint to these areas as you say in your directions and miraculously the scratches and chips were gone! Your product is amazing and is everything you claim it to be. After installing new headlight assemblies, new alloy wheels and using your wonderful product, everyone thinks I just bought a new van.

I am so glad I found your website and ordered your product.


Recently I purchased one of your kits to touch up some small chip damage that occurred on the nose of my aircraft. I used the product exactly as directed, and I was AMAZED at the result. It was as if the damage had never occurred – it is almost impossible to tell where it was repaired, and it has held up perfectly. Your technical department matched up the special aircraft paint color EXACTLY, without additional charge.

It is encouraging to use a product that exceeds my expectations, and deal with a company that provides such outstanding customer service. I just purchased 2 more kits, and look forward to similar great results.

If your product works so well on a $2,200,000 aircraft, imagine how good it will be on my Toyota Prius! Thanks!


Just a quick note about your product.

I go to a lot of car shows (I also own, and authored the foremost manual on car shows). I will be recommending you guys to everyone I meet who appears to be in need of Dr Colorchip – show cars have to be kept up.

The product worked as advertised, and your accommodating service was fantastic.




I just wanted to tell you I have had your product for over a year, haven’t had a chance to use it.

Tried it out Sunday on my red Titan truck. WOW! It’s like the chips and scratches never happened. This is the most amazing product I have ever used.

I am ordering a bottle of paint for my wife’s car.


I tried it and I really like it! Good job, folks. This is the first touch-up system that works!


had a chip on my new 530i. I tried this stuff from Dr. ColorChip (there is some website out there and the name is something like that one). The stuff was amazing (I do not work for them). It costs about $45, but well worth it. It does not work on really small scratches.

They send you matched BWM paint (A35 for my Monoco blue). You put the paint on the problem, and you literally rub it in. You let it dry as is. Then, they give you a solution to rub off the excess. I had some scratches on my trunk because one of my friends who was not used to the “rebound” trunk of the 530i was wearing a watch when the truck popped up. The stuff also gives you a gloss coating so you do not need to buy separate stuff. My trunk looked brand new afterwards. I was sold on the stuff.

This paint works a different way. You do not really paint it on and leave it there.

You rub the paint in to fill the gaps in the scratches and chips. Then, you rub the excess of. The beauty is that the job looks perfect.

If you use regular touch up paint or a pen, and you mess up, it is there for good. Plus regular touch up paid does not replicate the glossy finish.

Hope this helps. I really like the stuff.

You went way out of your way to help. You guys have a great program there. The first kit I received for my Mercedes Benz worked perfectly.


I ordered your product when I accidentally scratched the side of my new car. I didn’t think anything would cover the scratches and was set to take the car be repainted. Then I went on line and saw your product. I ordered it and we used it. The results are amazing. There were multiple
scratches from a post I came too close to when turning and they are almost gone…so I need some more of your product to finish a perfect job.


The product offered works incredibly well at hiding scratches and stone chips. Even though a deep scratch may not be completely or perfectly filled (even with repeated applications), the product does fill in the scratches and chips very well and improves the appearance dramatically. I was able to fill in two deep scratches (from key-ing) well enough so that they’re only visible from about 1-2 feet away. The product is reasonably easy to use, and the directions are pretty clear. If one needs to fill in scratches or chips, and the repair cannot be easily done with normal touch-up paint, this product offers the solution. I wish I had before/after picts from various distances of the scratches I filled/hid; the product impressed me greatly.
