So I have a turismo mica (blue) vz ute and ive noticed a few marks in the normal spots (back bumper, above front licence plate, tailgate) from where the previous owner/s have knocked into things and chipped the original paint off then used those little touch up bottles to go over it, now I'm real fussy and although you can't tell the touch ups from a distance I can tell they are there when I get close enough because the touch up paint just doesn't have the same gloss, so,
I'm wondering what's the best way to touch them up to look new again?
I'm in the process of using touch up paint on the mark, then sanding back so it's smooth with the panel and going over with a glossy clear coat in a spray can, I did this one a mark at the bottom of the front bumper and it come up alright,
But yeah if the pros here have a better way without going to a panel beater for a full respray please give me your opinion
Oh I can also put up pics if required
Be interested to see your touch up work?.. what grit sandpapers do you use? How do you apply the clear ? (tape off the area and spray?)
Sorry to come back with questions, but i want to touch up the corner of my front bar that scraped on a sleeper...

ill take some pictures when its not raining mate, i just used 1500 wet an dry which i had left over from cleaning up my rims, with the clear i just made sure the sanded area and around was clean and dry then gave it a couple light cloats, its only clear so i wasnt worried if it oversprayed the original paintwork, plus i was worried there might be noticable differences and that my way would blend better
yeah thats the only problem with low cars, scraping the bumpers on everything lol my front bumper is ####ed from a high gutter that i got to close to, ill take a pic of it aswell if anyone has any ideas on fixing it up
yeah man, thats about the way to do it. what i used to do was use either nail polish, or the proper colour mixed with a tonne of hardner, then apply it reeeeeeally carefully to scratches etc, sand the top off just the new paint once it had a chance to dry and buff the shit out of it. i dunno if i would go so far as using aerosol can clear on it though. i think you will find that itll just fade or peel off in the next few months.
ever since the day he was born, fluffy knew that he was not like all the other 454's. "GO AWAY and play in your silverado C3500" they would all say to him, laughing and snickering as he slowly loped away in his truck with his lowly 530NM of torque. but one day, one day, Fluffy knew he would grow up to power a 66 impala, and would be the talk of all the other 454's.
you can brush the color then brush on some clear. For stone chips I know someone that actually put a small but of soft bog in the chip to bring it to level. Then put the paint and clear. It was on a ex show car he said it came out really good. I have a chip on my ute that ill be fixing soon ill be making a video on how to fix it.
