ask any auto-body repair person, or professional painter - 'paint chips' are the result of damage to a surface that has been finished by painting! they are NOT the 'dry' samples that many paint stores and factories provide so users can see what their product will look like after it cures!

rant over, happy farming.

Hi Supertrucker,
Maybe where you live, but here they call the sample color cards paint chips.

must be an American thing, they've been called 'swatches' up here (i've heard them called 'color cards' too) ever since i can remember...
