all about spray cans, paint pens,
and touch up bottles

Pop quiz: What's the most important element to any automotive paint restoration, repair or refinishing job?

If you answered "the car", you're at least on the right track. Every automotive paint project begins with the right paint and today that paint comes in just about every size, shape and form imaginable. So which application is right for your project? Use the following overview to help get you started in the right direction.

1. Paint Pens

Paint pens are the newest addition to the world of automotive paint repair and nothing works better on small chips and scratches, which can easily add up over time and if left unattended, can lead to larger, more expensive problems. Every paint pen from has a special tip designed to make application easier, prevent mottling and allow for multiple uses over long periods of time.

Paint pens are not recommended for any damages larger than the size of a pencil eraser. For added convenience, we recommend keeping one in the house and one in the car.

Note: Because they prevent mottling and never dry up, paint pens have quickly become a popular replacement to the common Touch-Up Bottle. For this reason, touch-up bottles are no longer available from, but can still be special ordered over the phone. To order a 2 oz. touch-up bottle, please call 1-888-250-4936.

2. Spray Cans

For most common touch-up jobs outside the capabilities of a paint pen, spray cans are ideal. Intended for larger areas, each spray can is able to cover roughly two and a half square feet of surface. And each spray can from is equipped with a special nozzle, designed to spray in a vertical fan, similar to the spraying equipment used in professional bodyshops. This helps to provide easy control for a smooth, even finish that looks like new.

3. Touch-up Kits

A touch-up kit is a great way to take the guesswork out of your purchase. Whether it's an Economy Kit for quick fixes, or a Master Kit for the ultimate professional automotive makeover, you simply provide the color information and will take care of providing you with all the necessary tools.

Each kit from is geared towards a specific type of repair and level of quality. Be sure to read the descriptions carefully, so that you get exactly what you're looking for.

4. Larger Liquid Quantities (pints, quarts and gallons)

If you have the right equipment and experience, you may desire larger liquid quantities of automotive paint for use with a spray gun. Because of the variables involved in projects of this size, all orders for larger quantities are taken over the phone to assure that can provide you with the best pricing and customer service available.
