Buy touch up paint from the dealership. I once opened my door to quick and hit a tree. Made a tinny little chip about a half an inch long. Touch up paint worked great. It's only really good if you can see the metal though.

for some reason it was hard for me to find race red touch up paint for my 2012 because apparently the car was "too new." I went to a few places but Auto Zone special ordered it for me. It was like 7 bucks I think

Did you check Ford? They had my touch up paint about a month after I got my 13, and this was in the first few months that the model was released.

I bought dr. colorchip for my black stang to fix a couple small chips. I applied a coat and smeared it and let it sit for 15 minutes then used the solution to get the excess off. Did this about 4 times trying to get it as even as possible. Looks great and i am happy with the results. Waited a week and yesterday polished and waxed her using my porter cable and the dr. colorchip held up great, didn't come off at all.

For a basic surface scratch, I wouldn't recommend touch up paint. That's for more of paint chips. Go to autozone and ask them. I'm not really an expert so I don't to give you bad advice. :/

Should be no "metal" on the front bumper cover....that's all plastic.

The Dr. colorchip works great if you have patience and follow their directions. I've touched up a few stone type chips on the front bumper cover with excellent results.

So it's paint x3 > clear coat > wet sand (2500-300 grit) > polish?
