2) PAINT COLOR
Definition: Brush Touch Non Metallic Paint Color is used to cover deep discolored scratches, chips & paint defects caused by impact of an object where color coats are completely removed and/or left paint transfer that is impervious to solvent & is to thick to remove using cream cutting agents.
Procedure: Shake color contents well. Remove cap and squeegee brush. Check the color is correct. Apply color only to the fully discolored areas of damaged paint where the paint layers including the color coat has been completely removed. Allow 3 minutes drying time in between coats in good weather.
Paint Color Tips & Tricks: Always know your paint layers and make sure your not touching up scratches with the wrong material or the scratch will look just as bad as the original scratch.
Paint Scratch Test: You can usually tell which layer the scratch is in by using a Solvent or Clean-up solution. As the solvent is applied it will give the area a wet look. While it is wet if the scratch disappears that usually means that your paint scratch is confined to the top coat layer of the paint and may possibly be removed with out using paints & colors.
