NEW ORLEANS – If you’ve cut it a bit too close and scraped the garage door with your vehicle’s bumper, you’ll want to know performing your own vehicle paint repair is easy using AutomotiveTouchup. The company’s three-step solution, comprised of a primer, basecoat and clear coat, can be ordered online and shipped directly to your home or office.
Available in several forms, choose a paint pen for small rock chips or nicks smaller than a pencil eraser. Bottles with a built-in brush are the best option for small areas no larger than a dime, while 12-ounce aerosol spray cans can be used for sections of up to six square feet. The company’s aerosol containers have a pro-grade tip to assure a gentle, wide, finely-atomized fan pattern to achieve spray gun-quality application.
If repainting an entire vehicle, or performing a restoration project, AutomotiveTouchup is also available in ready-to-spray pints, quarts and gallons for use with a spray gun. In addition, the company also offers companion primers and high-gloss clear coats to take the job from bare metal to the final protective coat.
AutomotiveTouchup custom formulates every order from its comprehensive library of colors using the vehicle’s paint code to secure an exact match. Locating the vehicle’s paint code is explained on the company’s website: you can find your color code by providing the vehicle’s year, make and model.
Online ordering is convenient and all of the necessary supplies that might be needed to perform the repair are also available, so everything arrives in one box, eliminating multiple trips to the store. Sandpaper, auto grade masking tape, tack cloths, surface wipes, prep solvent, scuff pads, sanding blocks, applicator tools, rubbing compound, nitrile gloves and spray guns are all available for order on the website.
Customers can watch do-it-yourself how-to videos on the company’s website, or, a technical support staff is also available from 8 am-5 pm CST to answer questions or help walk customers through the paint repair process via phone.
“With the industry’s most comprehensive palette of OEM colors, reaching all the way back to the 1930s, AutomotiveTouchup provides perfect matched base coat color for virtually every year, make and model vehicle. We also have color matches for any vehicle brand that has been discontinued,” explained Jeremy Thurnau, president, AutomotiveTouchup. “In addition, if a special custom paint match is needed, we can also color match if a swatch or sample is submitted to our headquarters.”
