How do I use genuine Honda touch-up paint?

I have some dings and scratches on my car. My dad told me that they’re easily fixed with touch-up paint, so I bought a genuine Honda touch-up paint pen. However, I’ve never done touch-up work before. How do I use the genuine Honda touch-up paint pen?

Your dad is right! For minor blemishes on your paint, nothing works better than genuine Honda touch-up paint. Not only will it match exactly, but it’s also easy to use!
To use genuine Honda touch-up paint, shake the pen to ensure the paint mixes, use a small amount on the affected area, and protect it with clear coat.
Since you already purchased genuine Honda touch-up paint, you’re almost ready to go. The only other things you need are blue painter’s tape and a rag.
Once you have the tape, rag, and touch-up paint ready, follow these steps to make your car paint look like new:
  • Walk around the exterior of your vehicle and put a small piece of tape next to each of the blemishes on your car.
  • Once you’ve double-checked you have everything marked, shake up the pen.
  • Unscrew the top of the pen to use the paint brush inside.
  • Use a small amount of paint on each blemish, avoiding giant globs of paint.
  • Wipe away any excess paint with the towel.
  • Let the paint dry for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • Apply the clear coat and let it dry for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the painter’s tape.
In some cases, the chips and dings might be too deep or too large for you to properly fix them with a touch-up pen. In this case, consult a body shop for their opinion or an estimate of the damage.
