door ding w/paint damage


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have gotten door dings before but never with paint damage. I usually call the paintless ding repair (PDR) guy to come out and fix a small ding.

However, this time: a ding along with paint damage. Its located just next to the driver's side door handle and about the size of a round tack (okay, lame analogy but couldnt come up with anything quickly) What have you done in this situation? I would welcome suggestions as well as advice. Thanks very, very much!!!

Okay, maybe this is just not a popular topic. But people have to be experiencing dings, no?? I will now try to ask if anyone has experience with touch up paint from a company called Autovisuals? (its their Autosharp Pen product) They advertise in our Panorama magazine. Has anyone bought their touch up paint? Did it match well? How did work out? I am honestly trying to figure out the best way to go without going to the autobody shop and having my door repainted (ugh!)....Thanks!!

I'd vote for the best touch-up you can get. I bought the pen, but haven't had to use it. There is another product being advertised that claims great results without blobs of paint. Maybe in Pano - I'm pretty sure in Excellence.

There also have been several pieces written about application of filler an touch-up paint. Fine sand, retouch, finer sand, followed by rubbing compound, polish, elbow grease and wax.

A whole-panel respray always makes serious buyers suspicious about why the panel was done. That said my body/paint man thinks it anathema to do less-than-perfect work. Guess it depends on what you can live with. Good luck and let us know how it works out.
