Paint chip

I have a about a dime size paint chip right by my right side reflector. Do you guys have any recommendations on how I could touch it up? It doesn't have to be perfect being that it's hardly noticeable in the side reflector area. I am going to get my chin spoiler painted from a body shop this week. Think I should just ask them to touch up the chip as well? I just don't want them saying oh your whole bumper needs a repainting when the car is only a month old.

You can get a little tube of touch up paint from autozone if you would like, but since you're going to a body shop anyway, If it were me I would just ask them to touch it up, since they're professionals they could to it to look much better than a bottle of touch up from autozone.

Well damn. Time to replace the car I guess.

Lol no but I would ASK the shop first. They may be able to do it cheap since they are already doing more work. A touch up pen thing works but on a dime sized spot it would still be noticeable for sure

Yeah I won't pay more then MAYBE 100 for it if that. Like I said before my next option would be a paint kit for 35 bucks which comes with a filler, leveling solution and pad, and the paint.
