I live in a rural part of scotland. Half an hours drive to Dundee, the nearest city (tiny compared to edinburgh, glasgow, london, etc.) Yet there is one here. Google is your friend, so is the phone book! Someone is bound to know of somewhere in a city close to yourself!

Thats something I didn't know! I stalked your profile a bit and saw you're in 'the hills, TX" a quick google showed several places around about but none are within an hours drive. I often forget how big America is compared to Scotland!

i think the biggest problem made is useing the brush on the touch up paint. its to large;;;; if you have just a small hood chip, just shake well, then use the brush to put 1 drop of paint on, say a knife blade. then use a straight pin, hep that small, just touch the pin in the paint drop, grt just a small drop on the end of the pin , and set it in the crater, it will fill. you might need a second drop in a few min,,, then in a hour, use just tooth paste, keep it wet and slowly polish till the chip is gone.... the object is less is better'' just put the paint in the crater ,none on the paint;;;;oh yea,, good strong reading glasses, and light, i have a small lite i put in my mouth..one last thing, on my 2014 i just put on a Magnet Bra, what a great product,, its like the signs people put on the side or doors, very thin magnetic, and nothing can get under. with this you wont have any chips to fix;;; see pics go to Magnetbra.com 50$

Where do they sell 1500-2000 grit sandpaper? The finest I can find at local hardware stores is 500 grit.

ajp''''''' if you are looking for paper that fine; you don't need it, i mean, use a ultra fine polishing compound,, one brand is called gurlers rouge' it is so fine you will wish it was gritter, i use it last to completely blend the touch up in........ it is so fine you can polish your watch crystal if you want to,, or eye glasses''''''
