    Default stone chipped bonnet

    As above on a sapphire black veccy, the chips are not two bad but, I`ve done a, clayed
    b, A/G srp
    c, f1000p {2 coats}
    and the result is brill but now the chips show up white, could i do the front of the bonnet now with turtle colour magic black & then another 2 coats of f1000p to eliminate the dreaded white spots? or will one not adhere to the other?

    I had this on mine as well last month
    After polishing all the stone chips showed up, it looked more like the front of the car had been sandblasted
    This is one of the disadvantages of having a dark coloured paint car
    My last Vectra B was Titanium Silver and I just lived with the stone chips

    However, since the paint had been so badly affected I decide a respray was the only option to prevent long term damage
    On the plus side some other minor paint damage and bumper damage is also being attended to
    Repair to front bumper and lower spoiler, respray of bonnet, front bumper, and both front wings; £350
    It should have been completed by this afternoon, but several of the bumper clips needed replacing (a complete set was ordered so that they are all new) and didn't arrive in time, so I'll be getting car back on Monday

    I had this problem last week with my dark blue car. I used one of those black shoe polishing products (with a sponge on the end). I just dabbed it over the front of the bonnet, then wiped off with a cloth...looks good

    £350!! I was quoted more than that just to repair a few scratches and a slight crease on a rear door. Was also told the protection strip has to be replaced, even though it's only slightly scratched!

    You could try some poorboys blackhole and then a wax on top of that.
