Lightbulb Made some videos of paint chip repair on my 2012 Focus

I had some chips in the paint of my 2012 Focus, so I made some videos on how to fix them up using the Langka system. I thought you guys might be interested, so here they are:

Part 1:

Hope it helps some of you with crappy roads like I drive on.

"Apply a dime size glob of...." BLOP!!!! "Well that's a bit more than a dime size..."

hahaha... cracked me up, 'cause I've done the same thing many times.

Nice job with the video. Too bad it got so dark.

Thanks for the comments. I'm thinking maybe I should do a followup video in the daylight so you can see the results better.

Or a couple pictures of the treated spots.
I've been looking at different paint chip systems for my car, want o get them done before the icy snow an salt season arrives. I might consider this over drpaintchip.

I much prefer Dr Colorchip over this system.

Have you used both systems? Most people who have used both prefer Langka, from what I've read. I personally have not used Dr Colorchip.

Yes, but it's been a long time since I used the Lankga. I've purchased at least 5 different Dr Colorchip kits over the years and the paint is always an exact match and works very well. This is why I no longer spend the money and deal with the hassle of a clear bra, for the few chips I get I just use colorchip a few times a year.

I thought I had some before and afters with it but I can't seem to find them at the moment.

It's much faster, you smear the paint in the chip, wait a few minutes, then wipe it off. There's no extended wait times, no plastic card etc. Next time I have a chip to repair I'll do some before and afters, or take some pics and share. Thanks for making the video!
