Halfords Vauxhall Metro Blue Scratch & Chip Repair Kit
The Halfords Vauxhall Metro Blue scratch & chip repair kit is compatible to Vauxhall manufacturers code: 168 & 4XU.
The touch up paint is the ideal way to repair small unsightly scratches and stone chips on your cars bodywork, blending them in with an exact colour match.
Simply use the special glass fibre prep tool to remove any loose/flaking paint and all rust from the chip or scratch. Then apply the high build primer filler using the precision nib applicator or brush into the prepared rust free chips and scratches, building up the thickness in stages (leaving 10-20 minutes between coats) leaving 24 hours to harden.
Lightly rub down using abrasive side of special tool to achieve smooth finish, then apply your colour match using the precision nib applicator or brush to the prepared and primed chips or scratches. Build up the colour in stages by leaving 10-20 minutes between each coat*. Leave the paint for 24 hours to harden then simply buff the surface using fabric side of special tool to blend in the repair.

To find the manufacturer's colour code, look for the identification plate. In most cases this will be under the bonnet, in the boot or inside the driver's side door frame.
Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.Rated 1 out of 5 by NickInUK Awful result The colour match is terrible, now have dark blotches on my bonnet, followed the instructions to the letter. The "Special Prep Tool" does more damage than good and just removed the paint that was added rather than smooth it down, going to have to get it professionally repaired now. Not recommended if you want a good finish. 17 March 2014Rated 2 out of 5 by some2138 difficult to get a good finish Attempted to use this to tidy up keyed scratch on passenger door. Struggled to get the cap off the "pens", looking at the picture I think the "pin-nib" has remained stuck in the cap, consequently it is more like using a squeezy tube. I used the "pen" for the filler (might have been better to use the brush) and the brush for the colour (might have been better to use the pen). Despite best efforts colour is a ridge where the scratch was. The brush for the colour is nearly too fine. Lacquer would be better as a spray, applied using pen, not a smooth finish. Applying laquer seems to take off some of paint. 08 August 2013Rated 4 out of 5 by dj15 Just what I need and easy to use. This was just what I needed. Was very easy to use and gave a lovely finish. 11 March 2013Rated 5 out of 5 by vanman99 Worked perfectly I used this product recently after reversing in a very tight spot and bumping a wall. Slight dent and a lot of scratches and chips. Followed the instructions to the letter, use the filler, let it set, then add more filler as needed , then colour, let dry, then lacquer. I think this product needs a lot of patience, Car is now looking immaculate, even touched up paint chips on the front bumper, you would only notice the paint job if you where very close and looking for it. 09 October 2012Rated 2 out of 5 by emmagx Avoid if you want your car to look neat! COLOUR MATCH = AWFUL My car now has a dark patch on the area where the scratch was! I would avoid this unless you don't mind looking your car looking slightly discoloured It does however look slightly less messy than a scratch but I would still much rather pay a higher price to get the scratch removed properly as this has left my car looking abit shabby. 15 December 20101-5 of 5
