How to apply touch-up paint?


Recommended Posts

I have the touch-up set that has 2 bottles (one is the body color and one is the clear laquer). My question is does anybody know what the clear laquer is for? And when do you use/not use it? Have to touch up my first door ding! ARRRRGGGG!!!

Hello.

I got some arctic silver paint for stone chips a few weeks back. I would apply the paint, not with the brush, but a spike or point fashioned out of a piece of card. Put a blob in the cavity without letting it spill out over the side of the scratch. When it dries (24-48h) you may need another application. When this is dry put the clear lacquer on top.

All metallic paints have the clear lacquer for reflective purposes. You dont have to add it to your repair but it just makes it more resilient to multiple car washings etc.

If you are really a perfectionist, try langka for an even better result (www.langka.com). I have never needed this so I can't comment on what the manufacturers say on their website.

Good Luck!

I think another important trick is to add a bit of paint thinner to the base coat. This step makes it harder to get the blob effect, as the paint will dry much "flatter". I also was able to get more metal flakes like that (it may have been because my Arctic silver touchup bottle was sitting in my garage for a few months). Also Langka is a good product, since it doesnt really affect the surrounding original paint like a polish would. btw i think mothers bought the langka secret and sells same product at autoparts stores for half the price.
