    I would suggest going to NAPA or another auto parts store and see if they can get you color matched touch up paint.

    Also, 05PreRunner posted this link in his color matched grill surround thread recently and said it was a great place to order paint from:

    Even the dealerships aren't bad for touch up paint...I think I paid 8 bucks for the tube that I needed.

    Just washed my truck today and noticed paint chips everywhere on the hood and elsewhere. Depressing, to say the least... The largets being about a pea sized chip right next to the access cab window on the side of the truck, how that got there I don't know :confused:

    I bought some touch up paint from the dealer and just filled in the larger ones. They were already starting to rust, so we'll see how long it lasts.
