I got about a 1/16th chip through the paint.
If you want a story:
So putting my softbrake on and I'm using bolts with LED's for the plate light. So I get the plate relocater on and then find out that the holes aren't big enough for the light bolts. You know where this is going. So I go to take it off (not even bolted in) and my brother says "don't bother, I'll drill it through and won't come close to the bike" Well sure enough he taps it chips the paint to the fender. S.O.B all to save 5 seconds.
Everything looks easy when you watch a pro do it.
"Basscatcher" hit the nail on the head. It's a process. Take you time. Remember that cleanliness is super important. Be sure to use a little wax and grease remover on the effected area. Be sure that there is no crud in the chip ... then paint on. A tooth pick or a matchstick is generally an excellent way to keep the paint only in the needed area. Remember that it is usually better to apply several dabs giving sufficent dry time between.
