Applying Automotive Touch-Ups Can Repair Damage

You may notice that the paint job on your car has started to crack even if you haven't had it that long. Car paint tends to chip very easily because of road debris, adverse weather conditions and even scrapes from other vehicles. There's no need to have your car completely repainted just because of a few cracks since applying touch-up paint is more than enough in most circumstances.

Any damage smaller than a pencil eraser should be easy to fix. Many vehicles have the paint color code written on the bulkhead firewall. Look under the hood at the passenger's side and see if anything is written there. If you can find this number, then acquire matching paint. Otherwise, you might be able to match your car via paint chips.

Clean the area before you do any work, and make sure to apply a bit of rust arrestor if there's any oxidization. Get rid of any excess wax and then use a nick sander before applying primer. You should then be able to apply your touch-up paint easily.
