    Looking to touch up a few chips on my 2004 Black Pearl... wanted to see if anyone had found and used a black metallic nail polish with any success?

    If you're willing to spend a little more money, touchupdirect.com has great touch up paint.

    I used their primer, paint, and clearcoat on a rust spot in my bed

    A bunch of the same stuff everybody else has already done.
    I bought one of these, $13 well spent:

    +1. OP don't fight it, your best bet is the OEM touch up stuff with all the proper hardener and color match. When I use it I fine-sand it level then follow up with fine abrasive rubbing compound to make it even as possible then final sealant glaze. Nail polish? Ask any chick how long that lasts on her frikkin nails:D

    I had heard good things about Dr Color Chip, so ordered a 0.05 oz bottle (crazy expensive $28) in Silver Sky Metallic and color wasn't even close. I tried some Blade Silver touch-up I had for my Corvette and it
    matched MUCH BETTER. Needless to say, I'm done with Dr Color Chip.
