I have a few small dings on the front end of my car. They are about the size of a grain of sand. They are the usual road rash. What's the best way to apply touch up paint? I've used the small brush that comes with the paint but it still comes out like crap.
The best way to touch stuff up is to go to O'reilly and get a package of Wypalls. Unfold them and rip off one of the corners extending back 3-5 inches. Then dip the corner into the touch up paint and gently apply. It's not going to be perfect, but it's a lot better than a brush. I work at a body shop and have to do this regularly. The only way it's going to look perfect is ig you have it painted.

I am in no way an expert but i saw a guy that had a scratch on his fender fill it with touchup paint and let it set for about 30-45 seconds and then put a piece of masking tape on it press a little and it pulled up all the excess paint except for what was in the scratch. Looked ALOT better than most of the crp jobs you see. I can guarantee you will not be 100% satisfied unless you get it painted though
Go to English color, they sell a small tip applicator exactly for filling that and scratches. I add several layers then wet sand, buff, and polish. You will always be able to see it unless you repaint but you can only see mine at certain angles with the correct light and its smooth to the touch like the rest of the paint.
