It’s new. They previously just had bottles of touch up paint which included a pen and brush, now they are rolling everything into a ‘kit’ which costs about twice as much as the previous touch up paint. I think it’s only been available recently since I have been waiting on the Titanium color touch up paint which has been out of stock for months now. I was on the waiting list and was told I would be notified when it became available and just got this last Friday:

Dear Tesla Customer,


Thank you for your continued patience with the development of the Titanium Metallic (PPTI) Touch-Up Paint. We are pleased to announce that a new Paint Repair Kit has been released and is now available in the online shop. We have included a link below to the product page, for your convenience. Please remember to select your preferred color from the drop-down menu. If you would like to confirm which color will match your vehicle best, please refer to the 4 letter paint code located on the label attached to the driver side door.

As has been pointed out in other threads, this appears to be a white label branding of Dr. Colorchip's product, which is a fantastic product that is nothing like ordinary touch up paint. It does not require that tedious process of "building up, sanding, polishing, etc.", you just smudge it on over the chip, let it dry a bit, then gently wipe with the provided solution that takes the paint off the surface around the chip, leaving the product inside the chip hole. Demo of this below.

Do you have before and after photos?

We have two small chips from our recent road trip that I'd like to have fixed. I'm thinking we should have opted for the paint protection film when we took delivery of the car...

I have after photos ...but get the PPF:eek:

My chip was on a rear quarter panel I only PPFd the front :(

Wow that's a pro job! Looks like you've matched the metallic paint perfectly.

If your current job does not work out, you can start a car paint repair business :)
