Damaged paint?

Postby wolfeey152 » Sun Oct 04, 2015 9:31 am

So I had to do a repair on a stone chip and it turned out okay
I decided to use some meguiars scratch x to level the repair as it was slightly raised
Used a microfibre cloth and worked by hand
Fairly light application with a slight use of my palm
The repair looks much better to me now but there's a mark in the paint to the left of the repair

It's stillvnice and glossy like the rest of the paint and from what I can tell there's no colour transfer when I checked it with some very light pressure
What do you think it is? Is it bad and do I need to do anything or can I just leave jt now and not have the paint fade?

Looks good to me.

After 5 years of freeway driving my bonnet has a lot of stone chips, and that's with a bonnet protector.

I stopped bothering to use touch up paint after the first 10 :) they happen almost daily.

That part thats circled? The lighter colour. Nothing to worry about?
