I received the product featured in this blog post free for review purposes. All opinions expressed are my own.
About two years ago after grocery shopping at a local grocery store with my family. We did what everyone else did when you grocery shop. We put our groceries in the trunk of our car and prepared to leave. What wasn’t normal about this trip was the grocery cart that came out of nowhere and hit our 2014 Chrysler 200. It left two scratches on the rear bumper of the car. My husband and I told the store manager what happened. They reviewed camera footage and determined that they weren’t at fault. They told us that they couldn’t tell whether the cart hitting the car was the fault of a customer or an employee. We didn’t see who had the cart either. So basically we were screwed. Our only option was for us to pay to get it fixed ourselves since the damage didn’t meet our car insurance deductible. We decided to put it on hold since the scratches weren’t that big. Honestly we had pretty much forgotten about them until I was asked to review the Chipex Paint Chip Repair System.
The Chipex Paint Repair System was launched in 2009. It’s intended purpose is to help car owners save on costly paint touchup jobs. Instead of going to an auto shop and pay for labor as well the paint job we are able to do it ourselves at home. This was a great idea to me because I want to keep as much money in my pocket as possible. Plus I was ready to just get rid of the scratches on our car even though they are barely noticeable. You have to get up close to the car to see them. But I knew they were there and it kind of bothered me.
I ordered my Chipex 0n a Monday. To order is really easy you simply enter the type of car you have and the color. Then the website will handle everything from there. It will tell you what type of paint they are sending you. I received my Chipex two weeks later. This is because the company is based in the United Kingdom so it takes a little longer for me to receive it. That weekend I put the Chipex on the car. The whole process from beginning to end took about 45 minutes. What I liked about Chipex right away was how everything was included. I also liked how easy the instructions are to follow. Everything is labeled.
- First you clean the area where you want to make the paint repair. Make sure it is completely dry.
- Then you apply the paint that is provided to you in the Chipex Paint Chip Repair System kit. Let it dry from 1-20 minutes. Since it was warm out it took the paint on our car about 10 minutes to dry.
- After you apply the paint you let it dry and then apply the blend. The blend helps to make sure that the paint blends in with the rest of the paint on your car.
- The last step is for you to polish the paint.
For is the results turned out great! When we finished we couldn’t even tell where the scratches were and it blended it in perfectly. The Husband was really happy with it. Cause you know the car has to look good. Chipex lived up to exactly what it said that it would do. It gave us great results. I liked how easy it was to apply and how it didn’t take too long. I really loved the money that I saved by being able to do it myself. To pay a lot of money to get something so minor fixed is not worth it to me.
We were also given the opportunity to try the Chipex Screen Wash. This product is suppose to keep your front window clear through just about any weather. It is also suppose to drive rain away.
We really liked this product as well. It helped us to be able to see when we got some rain just the other day. Things were a bit clearer. I didn’t have to keep the windshield wipers going as much. I felt safer since I had it applied. Being able to see is definitely important. We had some really hard rain a few weeks ago that came with tornado warning. It helped my husband to be able to navigate the roads more safely than he normally would. So I was really glad to have it at that time.
