Deep scratches and touchups

    So I had an unfortunate incident this morning. As I was backing out of my parking space myself and another person didn't see each other and we lightly bumped each other. Fortunately neither of us were moving fast so there's no significant damage but there are some pretty good scratches in the back right area of my FiST. I've got the Tuxedo Black color. Just wondering if it'd be worth taking to the dealer to fix or get some touch up stuff myself? If doing it myself, where would I find the correct paint and how to I apply it? I'll upload some pics as soon as I get them!

    I'd like to think the Black would be easy to match up. I have Molten Orange, and the Ford touch up paint is laughably bad at matching. If you do it you'll probably spend under $20 and, with it being in the back, will be barely noticeable to you. Take it to the dealer...well, get a quote and then ask would you rather have them fix it, or you fix it with the stack of hundreds in your glove box? But it's going to bother you forever then have it professionally fixed regardless.

    Touchup paint is more for rock chips. If you have some deeper scratches it's not going to look much better with touchup paint than to leave it alone unless you're just that amazing at touchup paint.

    Go to http://www.drcolorchip.com/ and consider it done. I've used their touch up kit son several cars and it's amazingly easy with awesome results! I got a deep scratch on my FiST this past winter from going to close with the snowblower and wasn't sure it would fill enough not to see it. I did about 3 applications and built it up so that it's nearly invisible. If I did one more it would be but its so close I was happy.
