Unhappy

the paint on my bonnet has chipped off in 2 places. The chipped off area is really micro mini small and a touch up spray or paint will do the trick. ARe there any such products avaliable in the market? Are DIY spray's really easy to use? Lastly, the colour of my car is yellow. I have a palio S10 and i wonder if i will get the shade easily in the market.
thnax guys!

I have seen many com-paint ads in newspaper (mainly in Delhi editions). I would like to know whether these are worth trying or the body repair shop is still the good bet for small paint jobs?

since the area is very small, i would suggest staying away from spray. you may end up messing up a bigger area.

this gives a step by step approach.

I don't know whether this qualifies as OT, but can someone recommend the type and brand of paint (spray paint?) for speaker grills? I want to coordinate them with my car interiors and hence thinking of painting them.

I found this on ebay eBay India: Black Colour Spray Paint,Glossy Finish,Dries In Minutes (item 380001994396 end time 01-Apr-2008 09:05:08 IST)

Also, will this harm/inhibit speaker sound performance in any way?

Short of time abhi so will post details later. But I tried this Comp thing on my silver swift and will not recommend it at all. The color doesn't match and you can almost tell its a patch up job.
Details in a while.......

Let me suggest a simple solution in your case. If the area is really small, the best option would be to buy a small (50ml) can of the nearest yellow shade enamel paint and also get a white can. Open the cap of th yellow paint, with your finger, add a small quantity of white so that the shade nearly matches. Using a cotton bud (Johnsons), just touch up the area.

I have been doing this for minor scratches on my red civic and it works really well. For scratches, use the same technique along the length of the scratch, wait for 3 to 4 minutes and wipe of lightly. The paint will just remain inside the scratch and the excess will be wiped off.

Default Re: Touch Up spray/paint

Hi.

Couldn't find a way to post a new message, so replying in a relevant thread.

Some liquid fell on my car bonnet (possibly some kind of carpenter's gum/adhesive) and is stuck in multiple droplets form.

I went to UM cars on hal airport today and he tried using paint thinner. He took a blade and tried to scrape it off gently, that spot eventually cleared considerably but the 2nd spot had the paint coming off too.

He suggested doing a complete paint job on the bonnet, front bumper (some drops there too).

Can someone suggest what can be done at the least cost? Some kind of a touch up maybe?

Thanks!

Buddy, post some snaps, that would give some idea.
Using excessive thinner will spoil the paint finish.
If the paint started peeling-off, it is better to give a complete rubbing and a full coat of paint.
