    Paint chip repair

    I've just gotten my '13 ST2 in Tangerine Scream with 40,000 miles out of winter storage and need to fix some chips in the paint. The main ones are just under the leading edge of the hood. A while back I got a vial of touch up paint from the dealership but it seemed very thin and never used it. Does anyone have any advice fixing the Tangerine Scream paint? I know its a tri-coat so I'm not sure if there should be more than one vial of paint. Is there touch up paint that is better to use than what is gotten at the dealership? I've got some other chips on the door and around the tail lights that need to be fixed as well.

    I have never driven the car in the winter or in salt, but I'd like to do a bit more to prevent rust so I want to fix the chips and apply a ceramic coating.

    Also, I thought this post was appropriate for this thread, but if its not I'll post elsewhere.

    CJ Pony parts has a nice paint chip repair pen for ~$30.

    I wasn’t looking for a Tangerine Scream pen but I’m sure they’d have that color.

    These guys have spot on touch up paint and sell the tri coat colors. You will need Electric Gold Pearl; when you select it the site should tell you that this is a tri coat and they will sell you the base coat and color coat, I would order some clear also and get the bush on bottles for chip repair.
