    What good brands of paint do you all use for touch ups? I accidentally backed up into a mailbox (rushing to get out of a meeting to attend another meeting). Any recommendations?

    I bought this from my dealer. Touch up will never look 100% but the idea is to camouflage the blemish and these paint pens do the trick.

    I’m too anal to touch up that much damage... I’d have to repair and repaint the entire tailgate.

    Finding a color match isn't so much the problem as finding a good method of applying the touch up paint so that repair doesn't look like heck.

    Believe it or not, this system works great for small stone chips. You basically fill the reservoir, drop the paint into the crevice let dry, then polish it smooth. Your
    spots are a little large for this method.

    Demo starts at about 4:10
