TouchUpDirect can ensure you're ready for your next paint project. We'll get you the right paint so you can get it just right:

•The paint TouchUpDirect sells matches the factory coatings.

•TouchUpDirect customer service treats you the way we'd want to be treated.

•We know paint, and we know what you want. Because we use factory paint specifications to ensure you get the right match, you'll get the correct paint even when the manufacturer offered dozens – or hundreds – of color options.

Not sure if I had bad clear coat or what but after primer, color, and letting it dry for over an hour any attempt to put clear coat on makes the paint “wet” again and the clear coat pulls the paint right off. Spent a couple hours trying to follow instructions exactly and it’s a complete waste of time. And of course the color doesn’t match without the clear coat but you can’t apply clear coat.

Primer and the actual touch up pen seem okay. The clear coat is horrible. Polishing compound evened things up only slightly, but still does not match the original finish and I'm not at all convinced that there will be any durability at all.

Thank you,
Paint never fully cured after 8+ days, which caused it to come right out of the chips during the sanding/compounding process. Will not purchase again. Only upside is the color was nearly a perfect match, but that doesn’t matter if it would get hard enough to sand.

I highly recommend reaching out to our customer support team. I'm sure they can provide some expert advise to help solve the issue. They can be reached by emailing or by calling 855-600-8160
My experience with Touch up Direct has been less than satisfying. I first ordered the deluxe touch up package. Delivery was prompt but use of the package was a disaster. Color flowed to tip of applicator once. Once! After that it proved unusable. Considering that a lesson learned, I ordered the aerosol -- primer, color, and top coat. After three weeks I am still waiting for my touch up paint. The items were shipped via "ground." I live in Hawaii; "ground" translates into "boat, " a very poor choice for shipping anything other than cars and household goods to Hawaii. Perhaps once I have received and used my order my opinion of Touch up Direct will change. Only "TIME" will tell. Until now they have swung at and missed every pitch.

Hello Frank,

Thank you for providing feedback. I'm sorry to hear the original order did not work as expected. Did you reach out to our customer support for help? They can provide expert advice on how to complete your repair and assist with any product related issues. Regarding delivery times, I see that it is exactly two weeks from the date of order which is typical for delivery to Hawaii when shipping via ground. Aerosol cans cannot be shipped via air as it is a restricted item.

I recommend reaching out to our support team regarding the pen issue you had. I'm sure they can assist with a resolution. They can be reached by emailing or by calling 855-600-8160

Thank you,

The color matches great but the finish is awful. Rough and super obvious that it is covering a door ding. Stands out and looks horrible. I should have just left the door ding

I was painting a small factory body part on my BMW and the paint was blotchy, streaky, horrible. I even sanded the paint off and tried again, with the same results. I'm sure some customers have good results, but I did not. W

Pen tips are very fragile and both broke. Then the clear coat doesn't even stick (and the surface was prepped appropriately).

Color didn't really match. Close, but can see the difference. Plus they sent the order twice and double billed me. Not sure why, but won't order from them again.

I was very disappointed with the pens , the black was dried up and would only go on all cgoupy , ended up not ablt to use at all. these were very small areas and still could not cover. The color for the burgandy was bright red, no where near a match.

Funny, this survey came a day after I finally went to do the work on my Honda... Turns out I did not receive a color pen in my order. I received a clear coat pen, a primer pen, and two urethane pens, but, no candy red. Did misunderstand what I was ordering? #57042942

I was very disappointed with the results I achieved using your products. I was repairing a small area on a rear panel of an SUV. I bought paint that was supposed to be for my specific make/model of vehicle and the paint did not match... it was too light. And the clear did not set up right. it was rough and dull. Overall a terrible result. I spent a lot of time prepping and sanding the surface for a perfectly smooth finish but the paint came out terrible.

The color do not match. The color is very far from my paint color motorcycle. The color is more purple than red. Can not use it. Waste of money.

The clear coat was stringy like old glue, it ruined the hood of my car. The black paint was fine.
