    Hi all,

    I have a few chips that need to be addressed. Would you guys suggest going to the dealer to get the Toyota official paint pen, going to a site like paintscratch.com, or going to some other place?

    I was thinking maybe going to a paint shop and seeing what they had to offer.

    What is the proper way to fix small scratches? One spot I see has a bit of rust, so I know that needs to be cleaned carefully.

    Thanks all.

    I tried the langka kit with a paint pen from the dealer. It worked ok, but I still know the chips are there.
    I feel it's mostly to stop the rust.

    good luck
