Paint corrector/scratch remover?

So Ive noticed a couple light scratches on my FJ and a little chip at the edge of the drivers door.

Is there really a product that you can just put in to take care of it?

I think im just obsessed right now with the FJ 🤣

Thank you!

For the chip. Perfect match, I use it on mine.

I'll second that Automotive Touchup! I've used it on quite a few cars; both rattle can and the little bitty applicator method.

if the chips go down to the metal, get the primer also.

Iffn you grab a bigger hammer and that doesn't fix it, then the problem is electrical.

Re: Paint corrector/scratch remover?

For scratches watch some youtube videos on detailing. They are surprisingly easy to remove with some time and effort.

Thank you for the website. I too have a couple rock chips to touch up in army green. Great to have the color match. Just ordered all the supplies to do it correctly. Thanks again.

I've been to that website and have seen that too.

What method are you all using when it comes to touching up rock chips? I'm a little hesitant to use any kind of "sanding" or "wet sanding" when it comes to my paint.

I'm thinking I can get by with one of their touch-up pens, but then do I have to clear coat it too?
