2007 Black Tourist Touchup Paint

Post by backpacks_got_jets » Fri Aug 30, 2019 1:35 pm

Title

Looking for some touch up paint for my black tourist The black looks a standard gloss black that I could get from an auto parts store off the shelf.

Before I just go nab some black gloss should I bother digging to find the exact paint for a few dings?

FWIW, I got the Ural touch up paint for my forest fog GU back when I actually cared about dings and scrapes, it wasn't even close. With black it's more about matching the gloss, I'd go with whatever you can find locally.

Got to Walgreens and buy black nail polish. The one with the black cap with white polka dots it a great match for my Ural's gloss black. I gave up on Duplicolor when they went to two step touch-up pens. The nail polish works great, is durable and cheap. And you can get it at any drug store in any town on any day of the week.

In the toolkit is a bag of grass clippings, some old dried leaves and a bottle of clear lacquer.

If the nicks are small enough a black permanent marker works remarkably well. I get little nicks from time to time and I was using tractor supply gloss black from a spray can ....... sprayed onto something like cardboard and then applied with a paint brush or q-tip. Last time I did touch up I had a fresh black permanent marker handy and gave it a whirl. Holding up good so far.

Don't know if yours is powder coated like my 2011 - I just use Krylon black satin spray available at the local hardware store. Almost a perfect match for the OEM finish with a bit of rubbing compound around the edges to blend it after a week or so.
