Actually, I agree with eager -- I much prefer the bottle w/ brush combo to the pen. I've used both as recently as the last 2 wks (pen on mine; brush on hers) and the brush produced far superior results. I just can't seem to "fine tune" the pen the same way I can the brush. In fact, I've contacted the dealer and they told me the bottle/brush isn't avail for the MO (at least here in Can.) so I'm going to an aftermarket shop to see if I can get something non-Nissan.Nfilippelli said:so you guys recomend the touch up pen over touch up paint from nissan?
To smooth the applied paint, I discovered a 3M sanding stick at Wal-Mart and since have noticed it at other auto supply places. It is a very small stick mounted in a tube and is very effective in sanding a very small spot. Be careful though and do not rub the residue off with your hand. The stick is made of tightly packed tiny ground glass shards.thecanuck said::1zhelp:
I'm also looking for some advice on touch-ups. I recently discovered two wicked chips on the leading edge of the driver's side front fender -- down to the white. I've applied the touch-up via the pen but it still looks like crap. It doesn't appear to be filled in enough -- the level of the filled chip is still below the level of the "normal" finish.
What should I do? Multiple coats of touch-up to bring it up to level? Then what do I do with the gobbed mess? Rubbing compound to level it off and blend it in? Doesn't this also remove the clear coat from the surrounding area?
I've never used rubbing compound before and need some help here. I don't want to screw it up worse than it is already!
