Welcome,

I have never checked for touch up paint so I do not have any personal experience to help. Maybe someone else can jump in on that one ...

Enjoy the site and share with some more of the story. Is this your first Mach 1? Were you looking specifically for a Mach 1? ..

Any good auto paint store can put actual car paint into a standard spray can. To give you the conveinence of not having to use a spray gun. For small chips I simply spray some paint in the top of the lid, and use a good quality artist brush to slowly fill the chips, usually four or five times before its filled. If your careful you can level them off almost perfect, if you have a lot of patience. Be sure to dab or spray a little clear over them as you car is a base coat clear coat, and if you don't the paint spots can fade on you. Good luck with it. JTS 71 Mach1
