    Scratch.jpg Okay guys, need a little help. The scratch on my fender made me sick when it happened but I ordered the matching touch up from my dealership. Getting it today. Question is, what should I do to fix this other than apply the touch up paint? I am not a paint and body expert.

    Touchup probably won’t be perfect but at least it will be blue.... instructions will probably be on the bottle. If not, if it were me I would probably knock off anything loose that is about to fall off anyway and then scuff very lightly on the metal with fine sand paper just the stratch area only, clean with something mild to remove the dust and debris, then apply touch up! Your results might vary, a steady hand helps and not too much touchup at once ( can always do a second application) good luck!!

    My heart goes out to you. Scratches are never easy at first. Perhaps try using fishing line as the applicator. Very fine so you won't risk getting paint where it doesn't need to be. Take your time and patience is the key. What sucks is that you'll always be aware of it now.
