No it was chipped when I arrived on the job, just trying to help a customer out--
its a white top, and there are two chips...really small chips too, like 1/8 inch or so, thats why I thought maybe there was some type of repair kit

That stuff's mostly an epoxy resin of some sort, I believe. Should be able to find any number of epoxy materials to repair it, but gettin' the color to match might be a challenge. White ain't necessarily white and all, eh?

Somebody posted a link to a really good online source for the knife-grade epoxies the stoners use to glue up slab joints and such as that. Stuff might be just the ticket for your purpose. All kinds of colors to mix and match as I recall. What I don't recall is the name of the place.

Maybe somebody will come by and tell us where to look.

it's a plastic composite blend of high strength polyester resin and marble dust.
might be hard to match the exact color. mabe call the manufacturer for a repair kit.

Jason, I get those fixed all the time. If you don't have a cultured top guy just call around or maybe craigslist if you're on a budget. They can match the color very well however the clearcoat may not match if the old top has yellowed very much. FYI, you can buff those out yourself just like a car if the top is worn and dingy, but I'm not aware of any patch kits though.
