Unless it’s black, other colors can be quite obvious when applied

If you buy the correct colour code the colour should match well. But this is to touch up small spots, not scratches. Trying to touch up a long scratch will make it look worse.

You can also buy it online from http://www.ezytouchup.com/store/

But buy only the base coat. The rest are not necessary.

Using it just to cover stone chipped damage to avoid rust. Working? yes. Pretty? No.

Would Ezy Touchup work on scratches like below? This is at the front bumper - the paint has already peeled off. cry.gif

Or would it be better to send to a reliable auto paint shop? These scratches may be too trivial for them to entertain me...

Its a entry - moderate level of touch up paint but it still need some real skills to do it.

If the area too hot. the paint will become darken and worse

DONT USE THE BROWN substance included. That garbage will just make things worse

If you dont know how to DIY. Ask a detailer to do the job for you.

nope. ezy paint meant for touching up stone chips. for big scratches, it needs to be sprayed, not hand painted laugh.gif

i got a scratch just like yours, bought a paint from ez touch up website and painted.
not perfect like spray paint when you see very close but when looking at your car from 50 cm away, it looks perfect you wont even notice.

That touch up is just for small scratches. If the scratch surface is large then it will look very ugly as the color difference is very obvious. For small surface, you won't notice it from far. As for bumper, I don't really care because it won't cause rust. So just go for the ezy paint. I am getting it soon to repair scratches on my old car.

JZenith, abubin - Thanks, that gave me a bit of confidence. Maybe I'll consider using Ezy Touchup on the smaller scratches first, before moving on to that bigger patch towards the right. My concern is more to prevent potential rust though.

Better don't save money to buy these kind if products. I rather send to workshop to respray the whole bumper.

My car was crashed by an axxhole van minibus driver. The guy looks like a poor bastxxd. I just request RM100 only but he say he can't pay compensation. WTF, I don't want to make the road jam because I am blocking many cars behind. So in the end, I was just ignore him and drive my car away. I just hope this axxhole will get his karma in the future.

So now after one month, I am now sent my car to workshop to respray the whole bumper. It cost me RM380. It is not just a minor scratch but the paint is peeling off from the bumper surface.

That Ezy touch up is not for restoring anything more than just a dent.

I just tried using it to restore rust on my car but failed. The reason is because of sanding. This paint is just for touching up small holes the does not need sanding. You fill in the hole or scratch and then touch up with the clear coat. For anything that need sanding, you will need to DIY spray paint or send it paint workshop.

For bumpers, it depends on how much you can tolerate. For my old car, I don't really bother because it's only affect the look. I am more concerned with rust. Even if you DIY not a good job, I would rather save that RM300 for something like changing better shock absorbers or better tyres. But if it bothers you then sure, having it repainted will be nice.

Quite a big scratch you got there. This touch up paint will still be obvious. If you dont mind the look is fine. It is not easy using the brush and you will see uneven streaks. Try using daps, instead of strokes. Also, machine polish after so you get a more even coat.
