Is there a particular company that ya'all are utilizing for getting as close as touch up paint for your beetles?
I just purchased my 2002 a month ago, and am now (after spending LOTS of quality time TLC washing/waxing/detailing it, am finding lots of little nicks and scratches that I'd like/love to touch up with MATCHING paint, if possible.

Any certain company that is better then the others?

tks, Steve

Hit your local dealer up. They can order the original color in a marker style paint pen. About 12 bucks.

The dealer also sells small cans of touch up spray paint. I got some for my car to paint some of the bumper and it worked great. You get a can of paint and a can of clear.

Interesting, but how do you blend the spray paint? I have a big scuff on my rear bumper where someone hit me in a parking lot and I'd like to touch it up. I also wonder if this would work on my roof where it's fading as a temp solution?

I'm no pro painter so I just tried to spray lighter at the edges to blend it. Came out good enough for me. I got a lot of rock chips covered which made it look better. Ready for another spray soon though. I would probably get a couple cans of clear. I only had one and it would probably look better with a few more coats.
