paint...........





But seriously...
You should be able to get a paint chip pen from the dealer which will match your paint exactly....assuming you have a factory colour.....

I use touch up paint from the dealer to put a base color on if its a deep chip, then over a few times use clear nail polish w/hardner to final fill the spot with clear until almost level with the factory clear. Don't try and fill in 1 shot as it leaves a big bubble on the paint. Works for me.

No but they have guys around that will do it for you and it's not expensive and this system works. I had my car done just before I left for Revy.

That's probably because of the Canada Post strike that has been looming. I would call them.

They are working with health Canada. They don't have French writing on their packaging so they can't sell here till they do
