Touch-up paint

Where do you all get touch-up paint? I saw a victory red paint pen at an auto parts store, but not sure if it will match. Will the dealerships have a true match?

I get mine at a local autobody paint supplier. They match the color code on my cars and mix it while I wait. I usually get it in 2oz bottles.

I was nervous too, but you just gotta go for it. It works exactly the way they say it does. You gotta be trying really hard to screw it up.

I have tried both and I found the Dr Colorchip to be a way better match than the GM touch up paint (for black at least)

Very impressed and will continue to use!
