hard top question...

I recently dropped one of my freedom panels in my driveway and scraped it like crazy....unfortunately is white under the black so its very noticable....anyone know what I can use to repaint it? It's a black top but I don't want to use the wrong thing and have it look terrible...any help is very much appreciated

I have some scratches on my top. I was just going to use a rattle can on it if it really bothers me eventually. Luckily unless you are really tall you can't see the roof of your jeep anyway so no one else will notice, but I understand wanting to repaint it. I'd try krylon or rustoleum

I bought some touch up paint for my roof.

It made it worse. Color wasn't accurate AT ALL.
