Stone Chip Repair

Unfortunately stone chips are a common feature in bodywork, usually on the bonnet. Stone chips create small, deep and very localised damage in car paint. Car paint chips are the result of gravel and road debris flicked from the tyres of vehicles in front of you. Paint chips are more common to be a result of motorway driving. At high speeds, the little stones can leave a ding in your car paint.

Car Paint Chips

Stone chip damage can be made worse by winter weather, as salt-spreaders throw grit over the roads. Water and ice get into the chip and affect the metal underneath. It is impossible to avoid stone chip repair, but fixing stone chips is not as difficult as it may seem. Just like any other damage in your paintwork, it is important to repair the damage as soon as possible before it gets worse.

Fix Stone Paint Chips

Removing stone chips takes time. Follow our step-by-step instructions for the best results

  1. Clean and degrease the surface. This step is vital to remove contamination and give the car paint a good surface to adhere to.
  2. Sand down any raised edges around the stone chip. Don't rub too hard as this can damage the surrounding clearcoat.
  3. Apply a car paint primer or basecoat in a car touch up paint pen.
  4. Apply the car paint in thin layers and allow to dry between layers.
  5. Once the car paint is dry, gently sand to make it even.
  6. Apply a clear coat or lacquer to seal the stone chip repair.
