Now if I had the time to go into the eBay store of every country...
Here's the video I meant btw:
Also shows, that proper touchup isn't usually a "I'll do it on a nice sunday afternoon" job ... takes longer
So I botched a touch-up spot on my hood...the pen tip dispensed just a bit too much paint. I bought that Loew Cornell pen which is much better. Question is: how can I fix that spot I messed up? How can I remove the touch-up paint?
Use some rubbing compound to smooth the surface out and then use some polishing compound to restore the shine.
Lots of elbow grease required.
Wonderful, looking forward to that. I wonder if I should just have the local detailing place handle it...if I mess it up again I'll be so angry.
How big is the spot? Has the touchup paint essentially spilled over onto the factory paint? In other words have you repaired the problem with the paint but simply used too much paint?
If that's the case it should be pretty easy to fix. The rubbing compound will smooth out the service but remove some of the luster from the paint. After getting it factory smooth you just apply the polishing compound and it will restore the shine. It's a simple process if the spot is small.
I wouldn't pay someone to do it if it's small.
Yeah it's small, but basically the paint covered the chip spot but it was too much paint and when I tried fixing it it became a bit uneven. So while it's not really on the factory paint, maybe the rubbing compound could help smooth it out. Or maybe some 2000 sandpaper and then the compound.
You shouldn't need sandpaper for a small area. Rubbing compound will smoothen it out. If you have a powered drill you can buy some pads to use like a buffer. That'll make it a lot easier.
Would something like this make sense? Or just straight rubbing compound then separate polish? Advance Auto Parts - Down for Maintenance
I don't think that will work by itself. The grit in polishing compound is good for removing swirls and fine lines. I don't think it'll be abrasive enough to remove any high spots in the paint.
Sal, any movement on getting these paint pens in your store? I know this thread hasn’t had any movement in a while, was just wondering. My dealership spare parts told me they can’t source them because they’re a Kia America product not available in Australia. I’m thinking about doing the rebadge thing and thought if you had them I could throw one in when I get the badges to save on postage etc.
Paint pens are not good go for the brush type and use a plastic tooth pick to apply to chips. You can get paint on eBay.
