The Key to Applying Touch Up Paint to a Car Exterior

Our service center wanted to pass along a money-saving tip on how to touch up a small chip in your car paint easily. This guide is simple to implement and will take minutes to complete.

Use a clean cloth dipped in a soapy water mix to gently wash the area being painted. The goal here is to remove as many of the dirt, dust, and contaminants, from inside the chip. Now use a dab of polishing compound on your cloth, and rub in circles around the chip to soften the paint edge.

Once dry, you can dip your tiny paintbrush or Q-tip, into the paint and dab into the chip. If the chip is really small, use a wooden toothpick to get the paint into that opening. Less paint is better, it will blend in more easily.

Be sure to visit Holmes Volvo Cars if you need any servicing on your vehicle.
