I wouldn't recommend fixing a bunch of paint chips with touch up paint. If you have a high attention to detail I promise you will not love the result. It will look even worse if you apply ppf over a panel with several touch ups. If the panel is bad enough I suggest getting it resprayed and then putting ppf on after.My blue MY is 3 months old with 13K miles. No treatments yet.
I’m amazed how “soft & thin” the paint job is. Much more fragile than my Honda. Every time I wash the MY (2 bucket method with No Rinse) I find new marks in the top coat and a dozen or so pinprick-sized white holes in the hood and fenders. Plus bug streaks embedded in the top coat from driving 90mph through Kansas!
Detailer is offering to do paint correction (clay bar & polish) for $300 plus Silver package of 1 layer 9H for $800 (body, wheels, glass). They said if I provided touch-up paint they’d fix the white holes.
Is this worth it? My main goal is erase the damage that has occurred, and have a more streak/scratch resistant surface than I have now. I totally don’t mind doing my own bar & spray on a quarterly basis instead, but I don’t want to get into the business of polishing.
