Shake and check colour match before application

This is especially important with metallic touch up paint as the elements can seperate over time - this will ensure a better colour match.

Test in the door shut on a low vertical surface and allow to dry fully. Check the colour match from standing eye level.

Clean Area

Make sure the area is clean and dry

Ensure a clean starting area to prevent any contaminants getting in to your touch ups, If available use a polish / compound to clean the area as this will provide an excellent area for paint application and will soften the edges of any chips or scratches.

Touching up stone chip

Apply Colour

Remove any excess paint from the brush on the rim of the bottle.

Apply the touch up paint very carefully always trying to keep the paint inside the scratch or chip.

Allow to dry fully between light coats (approximately 30 minutes depending on conditions). Apply more coats as needed in thin layers until full coverage has been achieved. By applying several thin coats you will build layers that best replicate the factory paint.

Deeper chips and scratches that expose a lighter / darker primer (relative to vehicle colour) may require several coats to obtain full coverage.
