Our 'new' (to us) B-Max is deep impact blue too - we were lucky to find it as a used car, as now that they have stopped making them, they're almost becoming collectors' items! I love the colour. I had a white KA before which was lovely when it was clean, but did get a dirty backside after driving up the motorway in the rain. Has anyone dealt with stone chips on the deep impact blue yet? Just wondering how well a proper Ford touch-up paint would work.

Never found a better way to cover stonechips than touch up paint. Most are very good on newish cars, but dont match so well on older cars where the paint has faded.

I usually use about 3 coats, then rub down with TCut after a week, then polish and wax.

It helps if youcan feather it in a bit.

Have fun with your Deep Impact Blue B-Max!

Dirt or stone chip damage does not bother me,a car for me is a tool to get around,not a diamond to lock away.
Ours is getting a shower at the petrolstation once a month,the alloy wheels i spray with a cheap alloy cleaner before the shower.
A bit of wear and tear is unavoidable,especially when parking your car at shopping centres,causing small dents in doors.
An used car is like the face of an older woman,little scars make her more beautiful.


I always maintained the view that repairs for us are more expensive than what they are for car workshops,little dents and chip damage they will repair after you traded in the car,and they will not charge themselves VAT for that,probably they let a young bloke in training do that at almost zero cost.


And yes,driving B-Max means you are driving something out of the ordinary!

Hi and welcome,

Although mine is 'Magnetic' (Stupid name for grey) and I cannot speak for the Impact Blue, I had to do a stonechip in the last couple of weeks. Now I have done them on previous cars with varying success, but the result on this paint was really good using Ford touch-up paint. I can only find the repair if I spend ages looking for it, and I know where it is.
