Yes, you can get touch up paint for your car. Ford, or auto zone, napa etc with your paint code. On larger spot it is not going to match correctly. Over time your paint fades. If your damage is that noticeable to you. Then a paint shop will be your best bet.

Hey, sorry about that. The auto zone in my area stock it. Just purchase some by mistake. Dupli-Color #NG FM 378. My car true blue NG FM 358. But Ford should have in stock for you. Good luck.

If it says that, it doesn't have clear in with the color as depending on the size of the knick, the paint will be dull. It won't have the shine. I would get the same brand of clear just to be safe. If its small, u will never notice it.

Oh I see now where you said size. Sorry. Yeah, just get a clear coat in the same brand. I would try to clean the area a little, just to get any grease off. Jst don't flake anything else. Lol be gentle. It'll be easy to do once you get started, just take your time.

If it is the size of a penny, I would t use the pen/brush touch up... It'll look like crap.

Better off sanding, priming, rattle can, sand, clear, wet sand.... And even then will likely be noticeable. The problem with clear is you need sharp edges otherwise a blend into the existing clear is difficult.

Might want to consult a body shop... If you prep it, they might not charge you all that much and probably will hit all you chips.

I feel the same. The Saleen kit on my 97 was horrible! I spent every Saturday washing and touching up. I loved that car but hated touching it up. Once you get done, nobody will ever know its there but you lol. That's the part that killed me. I looked at every spot.
