just picked up a 2000 clk320 w/41,000 miles.
it has two very noticeable stone chips on the hood. i have purchased the
touch up point from the dealer. i have done this before with my bmw and
know enough not to use the brush that is supplied. the job just never seems to come out the way i would like it to come out.
does anyone have a procedure that can be done by the owner that will come out looking better than an amature performed the work?
i did get a price to repaint the entire hood and i am willing to pay it ($800) but i would prefer to stick with the factory paint and simply
do a decent repair job on my own.
i look at it as a used car that will be getting dings and scratches along the way.
i know i should do the job over a period of days with light coats each time. i would appreciate any help i can get with this matter.

thanks

David,
You should check out Langka. The guys in the Deatilers Forum and the BMW message boards swear by the product. It provides a kit that allows you to do professional quality repairs with your touch-up paint.

Also, people have also praised the AutoSharp pens as well:
