    I've got a small chip on the front passenger window frame. Anyone know where I can buy some touch-up paint for it? 2006, silver.

    Would Toyota sell that or just a regular auto parts store?

    X2 - It was only like 6 or eight bucks. And from my experience hardly anyone carries touch up paint anymore

    My past experience with a silver touch up paint is that it does not match up very well even factory paint. My wifes S2000 is silver and the touch up paint seems darker than the cars original paint. Yes it is a Honda OEM paint stick. I have had my truck almost 3 months now and have 3 tiny rock pecks in the paint. Sucks, I wished I had remembered the horror of silver paint before I bought my 2010 silver Taco. I wish I had waited for a white truck to arrive instead.:mad:

    Excellent. Thanks for the info, guys.

    I may bring it to a shop to see how much $$ to correct it the right way.

    I'll snap pics of before and after.
