****Paint Issues****
So ive washed my jeep a couple times now since the end of winter. since i have found numerous scratches along the side of the jeep and some rock chips on the hood. the scratches im hoping will be taken care of with the detail im going to get in the next week or so, but the rock chips wont be able to be fixed.

my question is... what is the best touch up paint available? ive heard of dr color chip and the normal touch up paint you can get from the dealer. has anyone used either?

Dude Im in the same boat as you right now. But I have a black 05 WK so 2 more years of rock chips and other paint issues lol But I may just repaint my hood, I have a guy through my regular mechanic that works at the auto body dept of a Jeep Dealership who paints on the side at the dealership. If I remember right he said its possible he may do the hood for just $200-$250. If thats the case then I'm doing it! I also have a couple of rust spots on the inside of my lift gate and rear passenger door that will need to be attended to soon. But as far as touch-up paint from the dealership, its pretty damn good. I touched up a few areas and it came out really good. No experience with Dr Color Chip though but I've been tempted to try.

Re: ****Paint Issues****
yea i have not looked for quotes for painting the whole hood... but if i find its only around the $250 range i may do it next year. as for now i might just touch it up.

i have used the aerosol cans for painting some engine parts and touchup paint for my MOPAR badge in the front.

For the scratches, I think the paint pens work best. I ordered 3 pens for th scratches i will be fixing up in the upcoming week, basecoat,primer,clearcoat.

I can take some before and after pics for the scratches. Just need to find time lol

Re: ****Paint Issues****

so this touch up needs primer, paint and clear?

Re: ****Paint Issues****
yea shouldnt be too hard, they got some how to vids on its site.

you can prolly just use the basecoat if you really want to shortcut it. But do it right with the primer,paint and clear!
