This pen color touch up paint is used for covering deep discolored scratches, chips & paint defects caused by impact of an object where color coats are completely removed and/or left paint transfer behind that is impervious to solvent & is to thick to remove using cream cutting agents.
Color Tips & Tricks: This is not the correct kit for metallic paint if you want the correct color. Clear + Color is the correct paint kit for factory metallic paint . Did you know that many scratches can be removed without color just by using the clean-up, blemish remover & clear gloss. It is often thought that color is needed for all scratches. If the scratch is distinctly discolored then the color will be definitely needed. Best way to tell is to wet the scratch with clean up, if it disappears when wet then use the clear to remove the scratch. If primers are removed and permanent repairs are desired we recommend primers be re-applied.
1) Clean damaged areas with a cleaning agent using clean-up Prep-it or alike.
2) Shake paint pen color contents well.
3) Remove cap and discharge the initial amount to rubbish by pressing the pen down in an upright position and squeezing the pen body slightly.
4) Checked the color is correct?
5) Apply 1 or 2 coats of Color only to the fully discolored areas of damaged paint where the paint layers including the color coat has been completely removed. Note: If either bare metal or plastic is visible it is recommended for permanent repairs the primers be reapplied.
6) Allow 3 minutes drying time in between coats in good weather.
Color Pen Tips & Tricks: If you have impact residue (paint transfer) that did not come off with solvent or blemish remover, apply one or two coats of color directly on only the discolored area.
