I'm using one, and i find it's impossible not to put a big blog of paint on the area. Is that ok? Should I wipe it down to size?

I know. The little pen part wasn't designed right. It should have a slot or groove in it to allow the paint to flow. Instead it just balls up and you get a huge blob of paint.
What I do is to dispense some paint into one of the grooves in the outside of the cover. Then I use it like an ink-well. Dip pen tip into it and then dab it on the car...

I have a scratch on my roof that I'm looking to repair, and considering using the Duplicator pen thing. I'm not extremely concerned about how it looks since it's on the roof, but more so about protecting the metal and preventing rust. The scratch is about 3 inches long and down to the metal. Anybody know if this solution will prevent rust? Anybody have a better idea?

I used the duplicolor pen on my old accord and it worked terrible. I ended up using the paint out of it with toothpicks. Worked much better than the pen tip. Dabbing Knicks with a qtip also worked better than the brush at the other end of the pen.

The Duplicolor pen sucks donkey balls. If you want a good solution for scratch and ding repair, check out Dr. Colorchip. I had their product for my Tacoma and bought it again for my F150. It's very simple to use and the results are great.
