    wanted to share a good positive review with all of you.
    i wanted to paint my trex eyelids to put on my Xrunner, and i HATE duplicolor "perfect" match because it DOESNT match for s**t.

    i started looking around online for matched paints in a spray can and i came across www.automotivetouchup.com

    they blend every can per order to exact factory paint specifications and it is top notch paint and aerosol mix that just goes on beautiful, unlike any other spray paint i have ever used.

    (unfortunantly) i only had time to paint today, no time to put on my truck due to rain, but here is the final result.

    the pics arnt the best because they are off my phone but it matches PERFECTLY to the stock paint color, even down to the mica (paint flecks)

    yea man, i have honestly never seen spray paint go on as nicely as this did. it looks sooo close to what an actual paint gun can do but you deffinently need to follow the directions to a tee

    Thanks for the link...I've been trying to figure out what brand of paint I would use to color-match my chrome bumper.

    How far did your spray can go? Any thoughts on how many cans one would need for a rear bumper, eyelids, tailgate latch, and mirror covers?

    I used automotivetouchup for my satoshi project and as op stated the paint matched perfectly. I have pics of the grill on my truck if u wanna c how close the match is. Stuff works real good n is a very good product n went on my grill unlike any other spraycan I have used. Give every coat ample amount of time to dry especially the clear coat. I used automotivetouchup brand clear coat and couldn't be happier with the outcome if I need paint again I am definitely going to go with them again.

    schiz, i didnt use adhesion promotor because they were already painted from being on my old truck. if you are goin to do your whole grill, i would buy two cans, sand the sh*t out of your grill, clean it and then paint with adhesion promoter, paint, then clearcoat
