Deep Blue Metallic PPSB touch up paint

Seems to me the price of the official PPSB touch up paint is pretty expensive. The kit from Tesla is $55.00, and it does not contain a quick Pen type applicator to do quick touchups of very minor super small rock chips. I purchased the kit for future larger repairs, but did not want to open the bottle for a single tiny rock chip. Plus it's a two step process, not really necessary for what I wanted to repair.

So I went on the hunt and found to my pleasant surprise, Dupli-Color Perfect Match 8 oz Dark Blue Metallic Spray Paint (O'Reilly Auto Parts number BGM0393, color code 28/WA8264). I actually had a can in my garage from a past paint job repair for an old Honda CR-V. It's only $10.49.

It's for sure not an exact match, but for tiny pencil lead size chips, it's amazingly close. I tried to find that color in the Scratch Fix All, which has a great applicator for tiny rock chips, but Duple-Color does not have one in the Dark Blue Metallic color.

What I did was find a tiny tipped paint brush (size of a pencil lead), spray some of the paint into a tiny cup, and was ready to touch up my first tiny rock chip that left the white undercoat showing on my hood.

I am pretty picky person, but I was extremely satisfied with the results.

Anyway, thought I would share....
