proper touch up paint procedures

I've never done touch-ups before but I recently purchased the bmw basepaint and laqeur clear coat touch up sticks. Anyone know the proper way of doing this? Specific times between each application? Any help would be great, thx!

dude, throw them out they are garbage, and order dr. colorchip.

www.drcolorchip.com

I used it on my car and would never use anything else, couple of other folks on here as well would say the same.

Yup, I'll dig up some before and after pictures for you. And it's super easy to use

Touch Up Paint Tips

The best way to fill stone chips is with a syringe. Use the touch up paint to fill the syringe, which will give you more control with the paint and will allow you to just fill the chip or mark. The brush or paint pens are useless and do not give you the control you need to do a perfect job.

Hope that helps

That stuff looks awesome. How does it hold up over time?

Did you get that stuff locally?

You have to buy them from their site drcolorchip.com

I think for beginners who are not going to wetsand and compound the touch up then they should stick with the dr color chip system.

Using those dealership touch up pens without wetsanding is just going to look bad with the blob of paint.

I was looking at the video on the heavy road rash nose pieces. Wouldn't it be better to spray bomb the area and the power compound/buff the sprayed area to catch the entire area if taking it to the pros is out of the question?

they say to use the brushes, but I blobbed a bunch on a paper towel to apply it to a large area, still worked fine. Did my whole car almost on 1 kit lol

before

after


Valance right side done, left side untouched


Bunch of stone chips on the bottom of my doors as well, so it gave a milky look almost, did those and viola, they look brand new.

And don't buy the extra large kit. I bought 2 thinking it wouldn't be enough., I did almost the whole car with 1/4 of 1 bottle and another bottle to spare.

a dozen sounds very conservative to me.

Judging by the amount of product that they used on the videos the small size can go a lot further.

Either way I'm sold enough to give it a try.
