It's really a pleasure to a company that delivers exactly what is advertised!! The match was exact and I did the repair under a carport! The only problem I encountered was time and temperature. I got the color on (even on the plastic bumper with some adhesive promoter) but by time I was shooting the clear it was too cold! I laid on 1 coat and could see a problem coming so I went with a wet coat first and left it alone. The next warm day was 5 day's later ! I had to color sand the fender ( went too far in 1 spot) but applied 3 coats anyway! Waited 3 day's and color sanded again and polished !! Turned out great!! I can still see where I went too far but no one else has.noticed it. Pay attention to your temps outside and it's a piece of cake !! I may even get another can of color and clear later this summer and do it again so I don't have see it either!!Good stuff from a good company!! That's rare in this day and age!!! Thanks you guy's make easy to stay looking good !!! An extremely happy customer!!!!! Steve

Shipping was good, the paint match was good . The primer was dry and when it came out of the pen it was thick and you could not put it on evenly , but the worst think was the clean coat it ran out the pen like water and ran down the side of my car . I used paint pen before and they been hit or miss but this was down right the worst!

I received the wrong paint and requested a return. I then bought it again so I had the right paint. Instead of getting a refund for the wrong paint I found out that you were going to send me a replacement paint so now I have two sets...

I love the website except that paying with PayPal using my iPhone (Safari) doesn’t work! I think it has to do with the pop up window process. It comes back to the site and says Shopping Cart Empty. I’m a web developer, by the way.

Paint did not match my car unfortunately and it is very obvious. I even followed the directions in terms of the amount of coats and time but unfortunately paint still did not match when it was dry.

I found the quality of the pen to be poor. The distribution of the paint was inconsistent, at best.
Helpful Report
I'll start with the good: Color match is acceptable. Not terrible. Not great. Initial customer support was helpful. ease of ordering was nice, but it did take a long time to arrive from the West Coast to me here in NC. The bad: The base coat application process did NOT go well. For starters, the color kept collecting on the metal rim UNDERNEATH the spray nozzle and would periodically get caught up in the aerosol spray and splatter big drops, or just drip. I got wise to this EARLY. It did this on my 3rd pass of my first base coat attempt. NOT the third COAT, i'm saying, this happened on the 3rd pass of the 1st coat. I'm just painting a small Miata fender, off the car. So, its a small part. You would not think painting such a small piece would have the ability to create such a build up so quickly. So, clearly, this is a flawed design. This did NOT happen with the clear coat. The clear coat went on with no spits or drips. however, the clear coat is REALLY tough to lay on in a heavy enough pattern to get it to really lay down smooth without creating a cloudy haze in the finish. Any less than this amount and you get a really dry, coarse, orange peel looking finish. I did not expect a butt match color match. I would not expect that from a high paid body shop finish, which is why they always insist on blending the color on to the adjacent panel to get the best color match. I was trying to do this on the cheap. I'm going to have to re-do it, so, did NOT get what I paid for. This is not really an acceptable finish to apply to a car. I painted cars for a living in the past before I went to college, but that was 20 years ago. I was really hoping that this solution would work, but in the end, its just going to cost me more time and money.

It would be nice to have a sheet of directions with the two can kit.
Helpful Report
I ordered three colors, one was perfect, one was close enough, and one was so wrong there was no way to use it. That is when the long drawn out issue of trying to blame me for the problem began. I heard numerous excuses why the color was wrong, from you gave us the wrong code, to the vehicle has been repainted, to it needs at least two coats of clear to match up. After several emails and headaches I finally got my money back on that color. WAY TO MANY EXCUSES!
Helpful Report
paint color is right on but it took extremely long to get it and I've spent hours trying to get the applicator to work like it should. A slight push on the pen does not bring paint or clear coat out. In fact I have to continually take the tip out of the applicator, turn it around just to get paint or the clear coat to come out. It's a pain and a mess.
