I have been thinking of ordering some touch up paint for my car so I can tackle a couple of he deeper scratches and bring he back to life, I have the niagra grey and according to Brit-car there are two types

and

whats the difference between these and could I simply prepare the damaged paint by sanding it with some 3000 grit and apply the areosol and then the clear coat then apply a layer of scratch remover or polish to blend the paint nicely?

Any one done this before?

I've used the ones that are in pen type form, like a sharpie marker. I find them useless for larger scratches that require much filling. Ok for little stone chips. Aerosol or a bottle with a brush applicator. Lay down a few coats, wet sand with 2000 or 3000 grit, clear coat, repeat sanding. Let it cure for a few days, buff with rubbing compound then wax.

for the bigger scratches, you have to get the spray cans. the pens will only work on tiny little paint chips. when i had a 3 inch x 1/4 inch scratch on my bumper, i tried the pens first and it didn't help at all. the spray cans required more work, but it actually fixed the problem. i got my paint from http://www.touchuppaintonline.com and it matches really well.
