Well...its for touching up chips.Okay so I'm confused, what exactly is the tough up paint for if not for small chips?
But using the touch up paint on a rock chip (for most folks on this forum who, if I'm reading correctly are very exacting (not to say obsessive
)) is like asking a symphony conductor or audiophile to listen to an MP3 version of Beethoven's 9th.
Its going to sound close, but not perfect. (Frankly until you get over 256Kbs most MP3s sound like MP3s on my Sennheiser 580s..and nothing is as good as vinyl 'cept live).
Same with the touch up paint. It will be "good enough" for most folks...and will most likely keep the spot from standing out like a sore thumb or worse yet, rusting. But that's if you apply it slowly and a little bit at a time- the big blob mentioned previously WILL stand out. (I wonder if clay will pop it off?)
But for the pros, semi-pros and anal-retentives it won't be perfect.
I'm thankful for this thread though as there's a long scratch in the Desert Mica on my 2005 Corolla that I think I'll leave alone. The chip on the hood though I'm going to fix...but with the matchstick, not the touchup pen.
