    Anyone have the hook up on touch up paints for the ranger. Got the magnetic grey and want to fill in some chips with small amount of paint. Thanks

    Magnetic is code J7. Any auto parts store that sells paint can make you up a touch up bottle... I just mixed some of it up last week!

    That’s going to be a tough one to touch up. Going to to have to 3k wet sand that around the chip. Dual action polisher a must with different pads and polish cuts to smooth out the paint and clear coat added. The ford paint is soft. Best case you can blend it in pretty good but won’t be perfect.

    Just polished a scratch out today. Kinda ocd about paint. Every couple months i touch up chips.

    ordered my paint of amazon. Will mess with it when it comes. Have done some paint correction on many cars. Every car different. Black and metallic colors can be tough to match like we want.

    I’ll give my feedback on the metallic gray touch up.

    I bet you could get it repainted for 300/400$.

    Hey,

    Where did you get your paint from? Order from PAINTSCRATCH on amazon and they sent me some paint that doesn't match and won't pay for return shipping. They're offering to mix a new batch but for 40$ i'll get a refund. Any insight appreciated. Thx
