Paint scratch dot com. Color matches via your vin #. It's more expensive.

I need to do some paint touch up on my corner once I pop out this dent. I wonder if this is too large of a job for a touch up?

Duplicolor sells touch up paint that has a small brush in the container. They sell it at most auto centers (PepBoys, Auto Zone etc) You will just need to have your paint code in order to get the correct color.

That's not going to pop out clean thanks to that crease so you'll have ripples. I'd get it as straight as possible and just get some corner guards and call it a day (after coating the exposed areas with primer and some paint so it won't rust).

Side note. I was looking for touch up for the solar yellow on my jeep. They don't make it. Gotta order it. BUT. The toyota yellow at auto whatever boys advanced zone shop place, matches "well enough" to call it a day. Just in case you drive the most bad ass color jeep there is.

Thanx Tommy, I'll need to find one for my jeep for the front passenger near the light. Didn't they stop making Solar Yellow? So just going to the Auto Zone I'll be able to order it? Awesome.

Here is the best tool ever for touching up paint. I used it when I did auto prep for used car dealerships. Just a hypodermic needle with the pointy end broken off and bent a bit. You have to thin the paint then put it in the syringe and drop it in where needed. Its perfect.

I believe it was advanced auto, but all the stores have it, the toyota yellow. The do not have the actual solar jeep yellow, that has to be ordered on line. I may have not said that to well. BUT the toyota yellow they have. IN STOCK, it matches well enough for me. You have to look at it from up close to tell it's not the same color. From ten feet and certainly driving you'd never tell. I had some serious scratches and marks on mine, just take your time! A little bit, let it dry. Add some more. Let it dry. Wet sand it with super high grit wet sandpaper, add some more, let it dry. Etc etc yada. Yada yada......yatzee!!!! Hey it's a tj save "perfect" paint repairs for the jks. Lol

All I really care about is getting the paint on, making sure it's weather proof with rain, snow, and mud, and I'm good
