Halfords Volkswagen Reflex Silver Scratch & Chip Repair Kit
The Halfords Volkswagen Reflex Silver scratch & chip repair kit is compatible to Volkswagen manufacturers code: LA7W, 8E & 9992.
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.

Halfords Volkswagen Reflex Silver Scratch & Chip Repair Kit is rated out of 5 by 8.Rated 1 out of 5 by VeeDubTom from Wrong colour and poor instructions The colour of this is wrong, it doesn't match the paint of the vehicle. I have used Halford's spray paint version before (which I read others said was wrong but I found to be spot on) but this is much darker and stands out from a mile off. The instructions are poor too. The instructions on the box are quite basic and don't explain properly. The instructions on the video that the QR code takes you to actually makes you end up with marks worse than what you started with! I'm now going to have to completely rub down the entire areas around the marks and do it again properly with the spray paints. I've got worse scratches than before and paint that doesn't match. I have been very patient doing the job. Left 24 hours in between layers as suggested. Rubbed it down, smoothed it out and done everything I can to try and get it right but this kit really is just no good.Date published: 2018-05-10Rated 1 out of 5 by liamb2017 from Avoid !!! its the wrong colour ! I purchased this a couple of week ago and tried it on my inside door as recommended and before it dried it appeared quite close to the colour with a dark edge. Partly my own fault i know but being impatient i decided to apply it to my bumper scratch and a couple of other places and upon waiting for it to try ive realised it doesnt match, its not even close to reflex silver. The result is my Tiguan looks ridiculous and its going to cost me £200 to sort it, halfords usually sell good stuff but this needs taking off their shelvesDate published: 2018-02-05Rated 4 out of 5 by chemboy from a good kit but search for instructions the repair kit has everything you need, but the instruction video is pretty poor. i would advise looking online for better tips about how to apply it. you have to be very careful not to spill over the edges at any stage.Date published: 2017-11-28Rated 1 out of 5 by Ladydriver85 from Do not use this on normal scratches I used this product following the instructions on the box & linked video on the Halfords website and ended up with worse scratches than the scratches it was originally intended to repair. The video indicated to use the microglass tool to scratch over the edges over the original scratch - this enlarged the original scratches (it may be useful when there are paint chips which need removed, but otherwise it makes the paintwork worse). When I applied the primer & tried to use the buffer tool to flatten the applied primer/paint & make it smooth - the buffer tool did not smooth it out at all so not only was it more scratched than before, it now also had a really uneven surface which didn't blend in. The kit may improve the look if it is a stone chip where the paint is scratched right back to the metal, but for scratches/scuffs which aren't full thickness do not use this product. I spent 5 hours with T-cut trying to repair the damage that the kit had done the day before - a lot of effort & a car looking much worse than it started! The video & instructions need updated to make it clear when to use/not use the kit/microglass tool and the buff tool needs replaced with something that works in evening out paint/primer layers.Date published: 2016-09-19Rated 5 out of 5 by tedsm from car p[aint good product available immediately full instructions providedDate published: 2015-11-13Rated 4 out of 5 by Stuart1111 from Good quality product does what it says on the tin - good product and good colour matchDate published: 2015-03-12Rated 1 out of 5 by Robbie30 from Reflex silver - failure to match car finish The colour was just not right even though I tried it six or so times. The silver was grained with black. I was only trying to repair a pin sized stone chip and in the end gave up on got the repair professionally resprayed..The paint never seemed to harden properly and the burnished pad was next to useless.Date published: 2014-08-27Rated 5 out of 5 by Mikckey from Great kit All that was needed in an easy to use and follow kit. You can also use a larger brush for areas requiring greater coverage. This is useful as the product dries so quickly.Date published: 2012-05-20
