Paint touch-up
Written by docta96 on 2/10/2010 at 04:42 pm

For what it is worth, nail polish comes in an almost infinite range of colors
and hues, and decals/stickers are often useful.....especially for lazy folks
like me....

Subject: PC800: Paint touch-up


I've got a real nasty scratch on the side of my trunk lid.
Looks like it goes all the way thru the paint and primer to the plastic. 'bout
3/32 wide and 4" long.
Any tips on touching that baby up good enough to not notice from a short
distance?
I've thought about ordering a custom touch-up pen, but, I'm not sure how it
will do. Ive heard the "pearl white" paint is very hard to match and blend.

      Keith By "nasty" do you mean deep, long, or a combination? I had several very slight (<3/8"), shallow nicks... a misguided boot heel?.. across the R sidebag. I took my spare '89 R mirror (pre-scuffed Ebay purchase) in

        The nasty scratch is a "combo" of both deep and long. I will post a picture tomorrow. Sounds like it was successful for you Larry. What nail polish and color ended up working? Did you apply it using the nail brush? how many coats? d
