    I've seen the Duplicolor line at the parts house. Wonder if they can get a custom color like "Crystal Granite"? I'm gonna check tomorow and follow up here.

    If not ..... reach out to either the parts department or body shop at one of the bigger Dodge dealers in your area. Maybe one of the Pensacola dealers.

    Back when Pony-ack was alive, the dealer where I bought my '05 GTO included a small bottle of Midnight Blue Metallic touch-up paint when I picked up the car.

    Got this coming from EBay. Anyone have suggestions on application? I just have a couple tiny chips that look huge now that I have pit a good clay bar and polish job on my car.

    Hi BurntRT I have used that same applicator on my friends 2011. The scratch we did was a long 6in. scratch. The trick is don't try an fill it in in one swell swoop if it's deep. I did 6 or 7 times till we got it right. Next step we used a orbital buffer an ran over it after a few days an then used the clear coat after. It came out great no body shop needed. I also used the Redline red pearl one on my 2016 Hellcat on a chip I got. Nick was alittle different just cleaned the spot touched the spot after that used clear coat then buffer all gone came out perfect. Just don't get in a hurry with it if there really bad itl come out fine. GL partner.

    I would say I'm dealing with a nick. Thanks for the advice. What product did you use for the clear? Orbital buffer with just the pad or some type of compound?

    Howdy again the other end of that applicator you showed the Clear Coat is on the other end the big Silver end unscrew an that's the Clear Coat you'll need it's all there. The pointy that's your paint end. You can use the pen like end or the brush whatever you need. The buffer I used was a orbital one with a pad you use to take light scratches out and the same polish you'd use for real like swirl marks or like detail shop would use nothing drastic. When you get your touch up applicator you see how each end works. The end that holds the Clear Coat the end looks like a tiny felt piece. You can look at these pics at what I'm talking about. Hope this helps partner. Going to post these pics hope this works.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
