Surface Preparation Touch Up
Ensure area to be repaired is clean and free from contaminants / wax using Pro-Cleaner or TUPF Wax & Grease remover.
Touch Up Pen Or Applicator If bare metal is exposed then carefully apply touch up primer with applicator to the metal only, ensuring not to spill over onto existing paintwork and allow 5-10 minutes to dry.
All in one Touch Up Pen or Paint Applicator Shake paint for 30 seconds with cap on and the ball rattling and test colour on test card prior to application . If using an all-in-one pen then remove the cap and press the spring-loaded tip of the paint pen a few times on a flat surface until the paint flows through the nib.
Note: The paint in the paint pen can take 1+ minute for the paint to reach the nib.
Apply all-in-one touch up ensuring not to spill over onto existing paintwork and allow 10-30 minutes to dry. Re-coat if required. Use same technique for Tri-coat paint if required (see NOTE below for Tri-coat information).
Flattening & Sanding after leaving overnight the repaired area can be carefully sanded back using the TUPF Paint & Polish kit with the P1500-2000, ensuring you only remove minimal original clear coat. Then using rubbing compound to bring up to a brilliant shine.NOTE: Tri-coat paints come with two paint pens, bottles or aerosols and require the application of the ground coat “Paint 1” first. Once paint 1 has been applied and you are satisfied with the finish ad the paint is dry you can then apply “paint 2” which adds the final colour finish and should be applied sparingly.
