    What’s the best approach for touching up stone chips etc in old car paint? Just get a small pot of 2k and epoxy for a primer or are those small touch up kits okay?

    Get a paint shop to do a paint match with the fuel cap etc. Got a better chance of a match

    Is it a solid colour or metallic ? If it's metallic you will not get a match without spraying.

    I ordered an aerosol for a metallic black Kia Ceed, my mate has scraped the front bumper. All they asked for is the reg number to get the vin and colour code and it will be mixed ready to pick up today and cost £12.56 including vat. I've had them for my Citroen and for my Honda and they are a pretty good match. My wife drives for the place on Saturdays and it's only a short walk away so very handy.

    The paint is tired and dull so matching is a good idea. I've got a company that have done it before for me so will get a tub of 2k from them.

    dab of 2k on a toothpick if your sure you can do it neat , will stay put

    vs ebay touch up kit /squirt of aerosol can be wiped off with thinners if you think it looks bad next week
