Cool Fixing clearcoat dings ...

I have a black '04 GT. Have a few small rock chips in the front fender and hood. Have successfully used a black paint pen on the ones thru the colour coat however there are some that are only thru the clearcoat ... where it has flaked and then wax accumulates in the chip.

I could clean and use a clearcoat pen but am looking for a more professional looking job ... short of a repaint.

Just small dings, can't even see them outside of 4' but would still like to fix them up ...

Suggestions?

Thanks.

You can get a small bottle of touch up paint from the dealership. It come in a bottle with a brush, like for finger nail polish.

Don't use the brush it is too big. Use a tooth pick, with the end frayed out a bit to hold the paint in a small drop on the end.

Use just enough to fill the hole. It will shrink when it dries.

if it is just your clear coat, you may be able to use a buffer, but you would have to becareful and not burn through.
