Touch up paint.

The front of my car got swamped with rock chips here and there that accumulated from previous owners and me. Last month I purchased some touch up paint from my local Honda, it included the base coat and clear coat, the guy at the counter gave it to me for about $18. So,today I finally decided to do it all. I couldnt get the pen thing to work so I had to use the brush. When I put it on the rock chip "holes", some of the paint went over to the good paint a bit, is that ok? So, I waited 30 minutes until i put a second layer of the base coat on. So now I'm waiting 24 hours until i put the clear coat on, so do i sand down the paint to regular paint levels then put on the clear coat? Do i have to sand the clear coat down to paint levels too? Anyone with any experience?

Re: Touch up paint.

I would definitely sand before applying the clear coat. I'm not a professional painter, but that sounds more logical to me.

Re: Touch up paint.

sand with 2000 grit wet sand paper very lightly before applying your clear coat.

and theres something you have to take out or open inside the container to make the pen work, i had the some problem lol.

Re: Touch up paint.

when i got my paint from Touch Up Paint Online - Remove Car Scratches, i told the guys there that my chips are super tiny and that the brush was going to make a mess. they told me to use a toothpick to apply very little paint at a time, and i gotta tell you, that worked great. It saves a lot of time messing around with sandpaper, which could be a scary though since it could mess up the area more.

Re: Touch up paint.

IMO sanding seems like a bad idea for touch up paint

Re: Touch up paint.

Well if the area you're touching up is extremely small then just put the paint and thats it, but ive done alot of painting and i've learned from experience that the proper sanding technique gives you the best results
