Applying Touch Up Paint Correctly to Your Car Exterior

Our service techs at Rick Roush Honda wanted to pass along tips for touching up the paint on the exterior of your vehicle.

Begin by taking a small clean white cloth, and wetting one edge with a soapy water mix. Rub the chip to get the dirt trapped inside. Use the same cloth, dab a small amount of polishing compound on the cloth, run the chip in circles, softening the edges of the paint to allow the new paint to blend more easily when dry.

Open the touch up paint and use the tiny brush to only fill the chip, do not try to get any paint on the rest of the vehicle. Less is going to be more, so you only want to get inside the chip. Use a wooden toothpick if needed, to get a dab of paint in the opening.
