sorry.. don't really know.. :gotme: i never repair anything with touch-up paint.. i saw lowincash did on his car and don't think it was that good at all.. maybe he just didn't do it right?

in any case.. paint chipping isn't very good and most likely will spread if you don't get it repainted again..

btw.. are we talking about OEM paint chipping? wouldn't this be covered under warranty?

if the paint just flakes off for no reason then yes they cover it. but if it's because a pebble chipped it off then no. also i WOULD use some touchup paint, it'll help it from rusting. when it starts to rust u'll be in some serious sh!t. remember not to actually "brush" the paint on ur car. i foudn the best solution is to put a drop of paint over the chipped area. as it dries the drop will flatten out and cover the chip mark nicely. remember not to use too much paint either, if the chipped area is small use a toothpick.

if people want me to i can write up a how to with pics oh how to do it... haha it's not that hard tho.
