    Default Touch up pen - where from?

    Thanks to a nice lorry flinging a stone up on the way home from work over taking me i now have a deep scratch down to the primer / nearly metal so wanted to touch it up for now. Where is best to get a touch up pen and is there anywhere on line?

    No, just ran downstairs to see how much my blue one was
    £4.50
    I think £2 was a bit ambitious, but still less than the £20 you expected

    The kit contains two pens, one with the colour and another with the sealant
    You need to make sure the colour is dry (for at least 12 hours) before applying the sealant (and allowing at least 6 hours for that to dry)

    When I touch up any areas I start at about 6am, I clean the area, apply the blue, place a clear pot with air holes (so that rain and air debris cannot affect it), leave for 12 hours, then repeat with the sealant; total time 18 hours
    I also park the car in area that will not be affected by sunlight

    Are these pens any good? I have some horrid white stone chips on the bonnet and front bumper, would this fix it, obviously not as good as respray but a heel of a lot cheaper. I remember my dad touching up one of his cars with a pen and it looked stupid lol. More noticeable than the scratch lol.

    It's acceptable on small areas, works best on bumpers and trim
    However, if your bonnet / bumper is peppered like the moon, then only a respray will solve that

    I used mine on a single scratch on my bonnet, as the aluminium was showing through
    I then covered up some paint damage on my bumper, until I could arrange for the respray

    I also applied some on my rear bumper (when I bought the car the dealership used black paint instead of blue)
    This bumper has since been damaged, so will be repaired in due course

    I've got an Ultra Blue veccy and the touch up kit I got from VX consisted of a paint and a lacquer pot which are like a nail varnish kit!!.You clean the scratch then apply the paint,wait for it to dry then apply the lacquer.No doubt protecting it from the elements as described in one of the earlier post is a good idea,and must aid/improve the eventual outcome and finish.FELIXX.

    As above, the areas I need to apply the paint to were absolutely tiny
    Probably measuring no larger than 2mm x 2mm
    Alright for a small number of deep stone chips that have gone right through to the aluminium, but no good for moon surfaces and large area

    Also good for damage on the bumper
    After all, that is what the bumper is for, what with all the stones, bricks, and other debris the front bumper has to put with!
