Just wanted to share my experience with my touch paint pen...
Went to a Nissan dealership and picked up a B17 metallic touch up paint. I have a few stone chips I wanted to touch up so they don't start oxidizing.
Cost me $17.00 bucks and it's pretty much a piece of junk! That's because it's a pen and not a brush. I've honestly shaking this pen for over 10 mins and nothing has really come out! Either I'm doing something wrong or its defective...
I plan on going to the dealership tomorrow and see what they can do..
Sorry, I forgot to report back. The parts guy I normally deal with said he wasn't surprised. He offered me another pen at no charge (Not sure if it's because I normally deal with him). I plan on buying the touch up paint bottle as another pen is not reliable
I have the pen and the bottle on the way here from courtesy parts. Have some chipped bits on the hatch door I want to clean up. Anyone have any advice? There's a bit of oxidation...I've heard I should sand the areas first?
I don't know about you guys, but my B17 touch up paint, both pen and brush kind, are slightly darker than the original paint. I don't know if this is due to a natural fading of the original paint over time, or somthing else, but it ends up being noticeable.
I did touch up paint on my car yesterday, and yeah it's not a perfect match by any means. you can still see where the rock chips are, but they're just painted rock chips now. they guy said to give it a few layers of paint letting each layer dry..so I may do that, once it stops raining.
