    My damned nephew shut my truck door and caught his large, metal, C shaped key chain in the door.

    The good news is I didn't kill him. The bad news is I now have my first scratch. Well, more aptly called a gouge.

    Has anyone had any success touching up paint? I don't want to spend a bunch of money on this.

    Dr. Colorchip is good stuff. Just depends on the chip. But it works well in the right circumstances. Dealership touch up paint is worthless imo.

    Thank you for this tip. Perfect timing too: I just ordered touch-up paint from the local dealership.

    DO NOT get Duplicolor touch up paint. The "Super White" is more of a cream color.Looks awful...

    Will this work on brush scratches from tight spaces while off roading?

    I got a long trail from the front end to the back (driver side) :anonymous:

    IMG_20190313_121401.jpg Bought some OEM from my local dealer ship this morning for my tundra then went to Honda and bought some for my wife's pilot. $11 from Toyota and $13 from Honda. Honda came with clear coat. Will try out in a week or so.IMG_20190313_121203.jpg

    I have some knicks and dings around my vehicle as well. I'm going to get my OEM touchup and the Langka blob eliminator and report back. Have 2-3 rock chips as well as a couple scratches insides the doors.
