So apparently I scuffed the lower front fascia yesterday and was wondering the best way to go forward. I know I can go to a body shop and have them fix it, but before going that route I wanted to see if anyone had a better (cheaper) idea. Is there any touchup paint that would work or anything? I know the answer, just blindly hoping!

I had the same thing happen on ours. I just used some touch up paint on it and it’s pretty much invisible now. If you’re close enough you can see it but 99.9% of people looking at it would never know.

I used Dr. ColorChip for a chip and it worked pretty good. Dr. ColorChip has a product for road rash that cost $60 and might be worth checking out.

You should be able to do a pretty good DIY repair on it using one of the better paint chip/repair kits on the market. Just be sure to follow all the basic prepping procedures to ensure long term durability. You can also locate an experienced mobile automotive paint repair specialist as another alternative.

I've had very good results with paint products from this source: Touch Up Paint and repair | AutomotiveTouchup I've used their paint in a bottle with brush and their rattle cans. They do an excellent job with color matching and the paint is great quality. The location of your problem makes repair fairly simple, because once repaired, the blemish will be practically unnoticeable. I'd fix it with the brush in a bottle product.

I don't care for the paint pens. They seem to clog fairly easily and mine have become unusable after a short time.
