Vehicle DIY touch up debuts in cans
AutomotiveTouchup.com, has launched a series of products designed with the car enthusiast in mind.
It’s a straightforward, three-step process involving a sandable primer, basecoat colour and a clearcoat. Along with the paint and other materials, AutomotiveTouchup.com’s website has an easy-to-use guide for determining your vehicle’s colour code, to make sure you get the exact match. You simply enter the year, manufacturer and make of vehicle and a list of paint colours for that particular vehicle pops up so you can make the right selection.
After that, you decide which form of paint is best for your repair: a pain pen, brush-in-bottle or aerosol spray. Paint pens or brush-in-bottle form are the most convenient way to make small chips, nicks and scratches disappear. For bumper scrapes and larger scratches when an entire body panel needs addressed, the aerosol spray is recommended. Larger repairs such as an entire hood or a total restoration would use AutomotiveTouchup’s ready-to-spray products, available in pints, quarts or gallons.
The website also offers supporting materials such as filler, sandpaper, rubbing compound and more.
To optimise results, the company’s website has a library of educational how-to videos that demonstrate techniques for a variety of different types of repairs. Customers can also call to speak with a customer service expert that can offer tips and guide them through the touch-up process.
“We make it simple for our customers to have the confidence to do their own paint repairs, with our online ordering that offers a perfect colour match to paint that applies smoothly in pen, bottle, aerosol spray can or ready-to-spray, we can help with an affordable and virtually seamless fix,” said Jeremy Thurnau, AutomotiveTouchup.com president. “Online ordering and direct shipping of AutomotiveTouchup’s products provides a convenient way to get the highest quality paint products at the lowest cost possible.”
