Best touch up paint?

Have a few touch ups needed and was wondering what everyone recommends and how well it matches Jeep colors (graphite gray here!). Also, any tips for touch ups?

Re: Best touch up paint?

I have used the brand Dupli-Color (any auto part store) and it worked out pretty well!

You just need to find the Chrysler section and they should have one that will say "Graphite Gray" (my Jeep is Steel Blue Metallic, and on the bottle that is exactly what it says)

Once you get it, find and clean a small area of your jeep that you can test out the paint that no one is going to see - (engine bay, door sill, rear cargo area...) apply the paint (they make these touch up bottles with both brush and pen applicators) so paint something to get the feel of how well it it going to match.

Thats what I did, I have since had the areas resprayed at the dealer but when I used the touch up pen, it really wasn't that bad and looked great.

Re: Best touch up paint?

Check out Dr.Colorchip. Google them...I just used this kit on my WJ's slightly road-rashed front bumper and the stuff works miracles. It fills, and the match was perfect.
