i think touch up pen is really hard to use...

Since controlling the flow is a bit hard...

I usually do it with a toothpick, maybe you should try that and see how that works. Distribute it with a toothpick, and make sure you do it when it's warm out, so it's more fluid.

i think the honda touch up paint sucks...i'm just gonna take my car on for my next service and let their body shop do the touch ups...they don't charge much for it and they have a great body shop there....and i did one or two with the touch up brush and it looked like trash....touch up paint is crappy anyways...and then with our paint being bad from the factory that means the touch up paint is even worse...ugh

i tried using it too, sucks. but i am not skilled in this area either.

if the scratches are that bad pay to have them fixed.....you might be disappointed in what your skills produce like i was.

it looks uneven and crappy.....so i just ended up not fixing the other scratches, waiting for some real damage to have it repainted.

Get your girl friend or any girl to apply the touch up using the little brush. They have very steady hands since they paint their nails.

i say go to a professional detailer and have them apply with...after all that is what the dealerships do and you can hardly tell even in direct sunlight. same goes for leather repair

lol that's exactly what i thought after my friend used touch up for his car...put rubbing alcohol on the area before u brush...wipe the area clean before u start...make sure the brush doesn't have any excess paint on it or else it'll glob and look nasty...use one coat of paint at a time...and wait around 5 minutes to apply each coat of paint..but i agree with everyone else..the quality of the touch up paint isn't exactly the greatest...u might be better off just getting it done at a shop

I used honda touch up paint yesterday, crappy! Ill just wait until the pain is really messed up and take it to a body shop and get the whole front end painted, or either get them to just touch up the car themselves.
