  • Two days old and dad cracks door off of a wall!!

    Getting out, my dad's just cracked the door off of a low wall, chipping the bottom of the passenger door . It's only tiny, but I'm concerned it will rust.

    What's the best way to correct this? Cocktail stick? Or a touch up pen? Best place to get a good paint match?

    He feels really bad, I feel worse for yelling lol. Accidents happen I guess!

      Get a touch up pen from vx or halfrauds. The pens are good as they have a needle to deliver the right amount of paint right where you need it. Sorry to hear this.

              Thanks all, I'll go grab one now. Likely to cost much?

              As you can see it really is tiny - about 1x3mm, but its right down to the metal. Will it rust?

              EDIT: sorry, didn't see last reply. Will go now

                Be fine as you're going to treat it rather than leave it

                      They the Vx ones yeah? I see the Halfrauds ones come with primer and lacquer too for £11 but the paint will likely be miles off.

                          ouch but like said accident's happend hope you were'nt to hard on your old fella.....vx can give you a colour match / touch up paint

                          thats what i would get ..the clean it..clay it then smooth it off with some wet and dry sand paper (very lightly on the area only) then just touch it up..this way you wont have any thing on/under the paint work so it should'nt rust
