Well, I got my first dent, had to happen.
The guy came to my garage and within 30 minutes had the dent out and the base coat and top coat of paint on. I didn't like it and told him so.
He said the Tri-White is near impossible to patch but explained that he wasn't done.
In two weeks, after the paints harden I'll call him and he'll come back, use #2000 sandpaper, some light rubbing compound and his buffer.
He doesn't live far from me and has a real honest business so I'll finish this in two weeks.
The Simply Dent guy came back today, gently sanded it with #2000 sandpaper, buffed that out.
It still didn't look right color-wise although it was nice and flush.
Then he took the two-part Tri-white touchup (base and clearcoat) paints and mixed them together on a piece of masking tape. Using a fine pointed toothpick he added just a tiny bit of the blended paints and by golly, it matched pretty good. I called it done.
Then just for kicks he buffed out a few spots on my other cars hood!
The trick with this Tri-White is to mix the base and clear, that gives you the right color and it blends. He also said not to use the brushes that come in the paint bottles, they lay on way too much paint, makes blobs. Instead, get a good, tiny bristle brush or use a pin or toothpick, less paint is better.
Here's the cheapo fix for my chipped/dented hood. If you get down close and look sideways it's still visible but good enough for now.
