Touch up new jeep-please help
 
I just bought a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara fully decked out Friday May 4th 2012, I thought i desearved something nice. That started my bad week. 3 ER visits, Stolen Credit Cards with $1000s of charges, Wife hits Big Dog and damages her car. Sounds bad right? But wait, theres more. I have had 2 different idiots hit my jeep so far, one hit my door with there door at the grocery store (they ran from scene) and a drunk driver plowes the side of my jeep with his car today and you guessed it, he doesn't have insurance. (I have had this jeep for 6 days from the lot) Luckily the side step took most of the brunt with little damage to the body of the jeep. His car was pretty damaged though. My jeep is in Crush Orange, and I am ordering a Touchup Pen for it for future use.

My question is: Is there a way i can buy the paint (not spray can or pen) for the body shop to use so I can get it exact? I have searched all over google and have gotten googled out lol.

Sorry for long post, had to ask about paint and VENT a little. I have never been in a collision before. Never hit anyone or been hit then 2 in just a couple of days. is it a sign? Do I not desearve something nice.

I was so upset i forgot to mention how much I love my jeep. It is awesome! I couldn't be happier with my jeep, just everything else is going wrong. Thankfully no one was hurt.

Ps. The drunk driver that hit my jeep was a dangerous person to have on the road. He couldn't even stand, and when i confronted him about his condition he got defensive and says " I live just down the road" and the street he lives on had over a dozen kids playing on the street. Thank god he hit my jeep and not one of those kids. While i drove the same street the kids were busy playing, and slow to move out of the way. When i think about it, i would rather have my problems than to see one of those kids get hit. But can anyone please help on the paint. Or suggest what i should do. Do body shops paint match real good or should I order tye Paint myself. Please remember, this is a brand new 2012 model so duct tape and orange sharpie aren't going to cut it. Thanks for the help guys and gals.

Welcome and enjoy the forum! You can get the paint from the dealer or most auto parts places.

The body shop should be able to take the information from you vehicle data plate an buy/mix the correct color. This has worked for me several times. :thumb:

Hope things go better for you.

A good body shop will get an exact match.

Thanks guys, almost got hit again. I found a bodyshop to fix me up. I'm friends with his daughter so they said $250 would cover it. Awesome since i still gota pay sales tax.
