Hello - yet another question that I would like to ask. :D. The color of my car is pearl black and I have quite a few (a lot really) paint chips on the front of the bonnet. What I would like to know is without a visit to the panel beaters and without painting the whole bonnet what is the best way to cover these chips as they show up quite badly having white undercoat.

The only paint I have at present is the Holts Dupli Color brush up bottle.

Well I guess you could touch them up, but youd want to make sure the paint matches on somewhere less noticeable first. Or you could get one of those bonnet protectors and put a few layers of tint on the reverse side, making it really dark. Might look nice if its done right.

I was at Autobarn yesterday and was actually looking at bonnet protectors because I have stone chips on my EB.
I saw some bonnet protectors to suit EA - EB's and they had some dark tint looking ones that are made by Aunger but they were around the $70 price. Does anyone know of anywhere that sells them at a cheaper price?

Always frank, always :D
On a darker colour car it would look mint.
Just look at EFFalcons photochop, unless it is actually on there.
