It’s been a while since I last featured a tip, mainly because I have not discovered anything worth sharing.
However, no thanks to what happened about 2 weeks ago, I remembered an old tip that I have heard of.
Long story short, my car became a victim of blind driver, who, I believed reversed into my parked car.
My car bonnet was dented and cracked! The impact must be really great to have created the crack.
Fortunately, it did not affect anything else. However, the crack was a pain because it risked the rust and I was not ready for a respray.
We got a car paint water color from a hardware shop, it was labelled as light silver, and to our horror, when we painted, it was dark grey!
Good grief! Now it looked worse than before!!!
The wasn’t-so-obvious crack became really obvious.
Having a light bulb moment, we decided to try ‘reducing’ the damage with a pearl white nail polish.
My silver nail polishes are too grey for my car.
Since the color is semi transparent, it managed to lighten up the scar bless the polish!
But of course, there is no way that you can get an exact match of your polish to car paint, but it at least helps to keep it from turning rusty. Another that I have learnt is using a clear top coat to overcoat the chipped area to prevent it from turning rusty.
Have you tried or heard of this tip before?
