Detailing order??

My car has a couple of scratches and chips that I plan on fixing with a Dr. ColorChip kit. Should I fix all the scratches and chips before or after compounding the car?

Seems like fixing them first and then compounding would help blend everything in better..?

Scratch repair comes after paint correction but before any sealant or wax. Touch up paint normally needs a few days/weeks to harden. If you do it first you will just remove it when you go over the area with a compound or polish. I have written about my detail order on my website if you are interested. Good luck with the detail!
