I have rock chips and i was trying to fill them in before i got the clear bra. well the paint is too clear for it to cover up a black hood chip. any thoughts/ideas? I'm going this weekend for the clear bra.

I had the same problem before I got my clear bra. I had one chip on the hood that went down to the metal. The body shop at my dealer charged me $40 to use my touch up paint, wet sand it flat, and hit it with a little clear coat. You can notice a slight differance in the color, but even I have trouble finding where the touch up was done.

I had the same proble using the touch-up paint provided by the dealer. The paint doesn't do the best job of hiding chips because the plastic is black.

haha you guys and your rock chips.
try this on for size....
this last weekend, I pulled a pre-preg splash off my hood to make a carbon fiber hood and well... things didnt go as planned. after wrestling with the cure cycle for some 20+hrs, the resin must have ate through the mold release and bonded to my hood. it took me 4 hours and about 50 wedges to pry my hood out of the mold.... I think Im going to need a lot of touch-up bottles... and some bondo, and a hammer. :D

just had to share with someone.
