3) PAINT COLOR PEN

Paint Color Tips & Tricks: Always know your paint layers and make sure your not touching up clear scratches with color or the scratch will look just as bad as the original scratch. Tip.
You can usually tell which layer the scratch is in when using the 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 clear gloss cutting and or cleaning agents should be used first.
4) CLEAR GLOSS PEN
Clear gloss is used to shine, seal & protect metallic paint color.
Shake clear pen contents well before use. Remove cap. Apply 1 to 2 coats of clear gloss over the applied paint color performed in the previous step. Do not apply the clear to good paint.
