paint chips and repair

Washing my car right now I noticed a fewpaint chips on my bumper and a few on my hood. I was just wondering if anyone has used the scratch/chip repair paint and if it works good. Also if an auto parts store would have my paint,which is the candy red, or if I would have to go to the dealer for it. T.I.A.

There's a thread about this exact thing halfway down the page.

Touch up paint + wet sand + polish

I've fixed a couple chips and you can't notice. YMMV as I have experience in detailing and paint correction.

I ordered it through Amazon. Pricing seemed good. Most dealers have it too but not sure about their price. I don't know what your paint code is though. Watch some videos on youtube, if you're not comfortable doing it yourself, try to see if any detail shops are around and can do it.

It is $20 from the dealer for paint and clearcoat, probably don't need clearcoat if the chips are small
