Re: bonnet touch up

I did buy a halfords touch up pen kit. but it came out darker than my car. so be warned you can use a blade to cut the excess paint off which is easier than tryin to sand a fine line without takin the undamged paint off aswell from which I've experiance, which is why I need a spray can lol.

Im getting a spray can from a website next time but will test it on the bumpers incase it doesnt match.

Re: bonnet touch up

if i mask off the area around the 'chips' can i just spray it on?

Re: bonnet touch up

I've got a similar problem. I rather stupidly rubbed some of the top layer of paint off my door with T-Cut (small area, no larger than 1-2cm.)

I'm not very car savvy - would I be best trying to spray over this?

Thanks for any advice!
