I have ceramic coated (Swissvax) my new Model 3 a few weeks ago. Last week when i was washing my car I noticed that the ceramic got 2-3 minor chips.

Is it an idea to repair this chips with the Tesla paint repair kit? Or needs the coating to be removed and reapplied on the whole panel first?

Thanks for any opinions.

The paint chip kit is intended to just fill the chip area, not add paint to the surface (where your ceramic coat is) so no reason to remove the coating first.
