Sometimes the nick/chip looks less noticeable if left alone. Paint touchups usually dont blend in that well. T.

Honda also sells touch up paint. I always apply a real light coat and let it dry. After it's dry, I apply another light coat and so on until I have filled the nick.

get some factory touch up, lite coat and then more coats till its filled in. read that some people use toothpicks to direct it directly into the crevice and not the surrounding finished finish.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING! :banghead: Another golden opportunity lost. With just a little imagination and fortitude you might have been able to blow this all out of proportion and manage to turn it into a good excuse to trade for a new one. :lol: :lol: Oh well. I guess your 2005 isn't really trashed enough to warrant all that effort. But keep it in mind if you get ANOTHER chip. :lol: :lol:
