We have a 2014 Subaru Cross Trex. It’s only two years old and we’ve managed to get into a couple of minor accidents already. Grant was driving along one day and a wild turkey flew right into the right front passenger side. (Okay, so not technically his fault!)
We did get this repaired at a local shop. Not long after this, we damaged the same area! Grant likes to plow through the snow banks to get the mail from our box. He either swiped our mailbox or the hard snowbank scratched that area – again. He thinks it happened when I was parked at the school where I work or at the grocery store. I don’t think so.
The truth is, that area is dented and scratched. I know a paint system like Chipex can’t fix a dent, nor can it fix a dent with a scratch in it, but there was one small rusted area that I thought I could touch up successfully.
Chipex Paint Kit Repair System Review
The complete system includes two bottle of my car’s exact paint color (Pearl), one bottle of blend, one bottle of polish, several paint applicators, cloths, a small piece of foam and rubber gloves. Chipex can match just about any color of paint. I just had to provide the paint code found within the passenger side door.
Here is a photo of the rusted area that I am about to repair. Notice the dent and scratches also! It’s really in rough shape.
Step one is to apply the paint to the area. Here is what the applicator looks like.
All of that excess paint is removed, once I blended, using the foam piece wrapped in the blue cloth. This is essentially a paint remover. You really can’t go wrong by adding too much paint. Simply “blend” it to your liking.
Here is the buffing cream with soft yellow cloth. This is the last step of the process.
This is the final result after blending and buffing.
The scratches are still there, but they are much improved. The rusted area is filled in with an exact paint match that I did myself. For a perfect repair, I would have had to sand and prep the area of course. I realize that up close the repair is recognizable, but now it is camouflaged when viewing from a distance. I am pleased with these results and glad to have the Chipex Paint Kit Repair system on hand for future touch-ups.
Chipex Screen Wash Review
The Screen Wash was an extra bonus that I received in my review package. This product is added to my existing washer fluid to help improve it’s cleaning performance on my windshield. I simply added the correct amount for my first fill by using the measurements on the bottle.
I could notice a difference in my washer fluid immediately! It was now more sudsy – like it had more cleaning power. It left my windshield very clean and it is fast drying as well. Here you can see how clean it is. 🙂
