  • Halfords Volkswagen Tornado Red Scratch & Chip Repair Kit

    The Halfords Volkswagen Tornado Red scratch & chip repair kit is compatible to Volkswagen manufacturers code: LY3D, G2 & 9301.

    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.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good colour match, but a bit tricky to handle This paint is a good match for the original colour and, once applied, the results are satisfactory. I would expect it to work better on small, deep blemishes like stone chips, than superficial scuffs, which is what I had. Both the primer and the top coat are thick, and will fill a deep chip. However, the thickness, combined with the very quick drying, makes the pain hard to handle with superficial marks. I thought that I could dab the paint on and then smooth it over with the brush but, in fact, by the time I came to smooth it, it had already dried. So I had to sand off the lumpy paint and do it again. The supplied sanding pad is extremely fine -- it needs a lot of elbow grease. On the positive side, it's unlikely to damage the surrounding paintwork much.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Colour doesn't match Unfortunately for my '14 plate golf the paint doesn't match. Far too orange. Not even close. Can spot the difference from 10m away! Quality of the product and explanation is fine (apart from brush bit too fiddly) but colour completely different!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware I watched the accompanying halfords video several times before buying and again before using. I had a stone chip about 4mm square. The abrasive tool looked simple to use in the video. It did more damage to the surrounding area. The paint was not a very good match. No way was it VW Tornado Red. The two application methods - brush or pointer seemed like they could solve chips or scratches ideally. However both were problematic and disappointing un-smooth finish. You can see the bodge from about 5 feet away. Only use in an inconspicuous area.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best touch-up pen! Used this on a car with loads of tiny chips. The metal nib allowed excellent accuracy, far better than any brush type I have used before and the end result was undetectable. Would highly recommend this product!
