    Okay, so I bought the touch up paint from the dealer to fix a rock chip on my paint.

    However, the label seems to be written in harry potter font and downsized to size 1 by some wizardry magic.

    Anybody know what the label says for directions?
    Also, any suggestions as to what to do before I apply the touch up paint on the body of the truck?
    final question: does the touch up paint seal the metal and protect it?

    thanks in advance!!!

    If noone responds by tomorrow I can post up a pic from my bottle. It kind of seals it but directions state to let dry then clear coat. I use it as a sealant though for scratches that get down to the metal and it has worked fine the past few months. For my MGM though it isn't a perfect match and almost looks worse than the scratch so I use it sparingly.

    Shake well before use!! It says to also let each coat dry about 30 minutes before applying another coat or clear coat.

    A picture of your bottle would be nice if the label is much more clear than mine. :/

    so is there a separate clear coat bottle I should be buying?

    thanks guys!

    type of clear coat doesn't matter eh? I'm assuming I just go get it from the local auto parts store. Pardon my ignorance in regards to paint touch up. :/

    No, don't get crap at the auto parts store. I did.....once. Never again. I'll just buy the overpriced stuff from the dealer, at least it won't turn yellow, crack and chip away.

    Right? As illegible as a doctor's handwriting for an important medication.
