Automotive Touchup paint on quad projector headlight housing
 
I was looking thorugh the threads here on JG and i was seeing responses about the color matching paint from automotive touch-up.com possibly being bad. I ordered this paint for my retrofit is it a good idea to colormatch my housing's with this paint. Any insight will be very helpful

for me, automotive touchup is amazing, it matches my paint code(PXR) perfectly. As for headlights, Im pretty sure you wont have a problem. I used a can of Engine Enamel semi gloss black for my headlights just because of maybe the heat from the HIDs and only can i had at the moment lol.

i used automotivetouchup on my headlights when i had a problem. BUT I did like 20 things at once so the paint being the cause is questionable. plus I used a clear over the color. and it MAY or MAY NOT be automotivetouchup clear....dont recall/ i epoxied the QUAD projectors in. epoxy the led rhlao trings. painted shrouds flat black........so who knows.

AND I ditched the cheap aftermarket lenses for OEM and glued it all back and its together now. and been like that since last year/

Hey Pmpn did you leave your chrome reflecters in when you did your retrofit after sanding and painting or did your remove them completely
