Plasti Dip Touch Up

Hello all. I recently put a billet grille on my car. When I took the bumper off I painted the chrome grille surround with black plastidip. However, when I put the grille on it scratched through it in one place. I was wondering if anyone had a recommended way to touch it up.
Thanks in advance.

Personally I'd take it back off, peel all the dip off, and spray again, than be extra careful putting it back on, not easy to touch up plastidip and make it look good. But if I had to, I'd suggest getting an actual can (not spray can) of plasti dip, and a small brush, and kinda brush it on/over the scratched area.

If you take everything off and spray from a distance I think you could fix it.

Well if I took it off again I think I would just tear it again... I was actually surprised that I only tore one little spot.
I'll try the the bottle and brush. I guess if that doesn't work I'll be taking it back apart... Lol

I wouldn't plasti dip isn't good touch up stuff you would need to restart or take off and do what i said. it would leave streaks i think if you used a brush.

+1 I'd start over again, maybe go with a few extra coats, and very very carefully re install

I really don't want to take the bumper off again... I guess I'll try to get it out from the top without taking the whole thing off.
Thanks for the help guys. I appreciate it
