Touch Up Paint

Anyone know a good source for a small bottle of touch up paint? I have a few spots on the front bumper (Black/Raven)?

I need to get some for my car, unfortunately darker colors show small rock chips easier (Asphalt Gray). Combined with driving a low vehicle in the land of trucks, SUVís, and construction equipment

I have found that they seem to do a good job on the touch up paint. As with any though it is all in the prep.

Yes.

Iím amazed at the ability of those dealer paint pens to fill voids and dry like nothing happened. I donít know if Iíve been doing it right or not, but I just clean the site with isopropyl alcohol and then fill the void. After washing the car a few times I forget theyíre there. Granted, those are just rock chips.

Their pens work very well. I also did the syringe that Larry from AmmoNYC demonstrates. But it’s more work than the pens. Depends what you are doing. A show car use the syringe., a daily with rock chips do the pen.

They're the cheapest and most accurate match ;-)

Also, don't be surprised by the paint's color when you open the bottle. The Raven is blueish in liquid form, but blackens as it dries. Had me quite puzzled at first!

i had a friend who said the bottle they got would absolutely not work at all when the did some touch up on their rides because they said what someone mentioned, the color looked all wrong in the bottle. then they applied it and after awhile it looked like nothing ever happened. they were pretty impressed.

His car should have been relatively low mileage because touch up paint usually matches the factory color.
