The touch up paint is the ideal way to repair small unsightly scratches and stone chips on your cars bodywork, blending them in with an exact colour match.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.Rated 3 out of 5 by MWPW Only okay... The colour of this paint perfectly matched my Mini and I was happy with that, but I wasn't happy with the tools that the kit came with. The abrasive side of sponge isn't abrasive enough to smooth the primer out, so it didn't really help much. Also, the precision brushes are too soft and this makes it really difficult to apply the paints. I couldn't use the precision nib on my primer pen because it seemed to be blocked. After completing the cover up, it looks okay. The colour is matched but it isn't perfect and the overall finish isn't very smooth. Although for 12 quid, I'm not sure you're really going to be able to achieve perfection. I think this would work well on scratches, but for deep chips it's not so great. 20 May 20141-1 of 1
