I need some paint to go over a couple of areas on my car, colour is sea grey metallic.

I've found 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HYCOTE-FORD-SEA-GREY-METALLIC-DOUBLE-ACRYLIC-SPRAY-PAINT-150ML-/150705567150?pt=UK_Body_Shop_Supplies_Paint&hash=item2316c075ae

 

But it does not say touch up paint, but would it do the same job?

I've also found this

Are there any other sites people recommend?

 

Thanks

First one would be ok for larger areas/panels etc but the second one is purely for touch up repairs.

I have a small area where my nephew tried a clean my car with one of them green washing up things...its left a circle of scratches that looks bad.

 

Would the spray be okay to just cover it over?

In that case yes, I'd probably use the spray, but I believe you'll need to strip the paint off, paint, and clearcoat... A lot of hassle.

 

Is it too deep for T-Cut or equivalent?

T-cut did help it, might just spray it and see how it looks

Hi if you are having to touch up the affected area you will have to mask around sand down and apply thin ,ultiple layers of the paint you might also need to re lacquer it afterwards

be careful Reece,

 

I tried to do a touch up on a load of scratches on my wheel arch on my old fiesta yonks ago, it ended up worse than it started and still had to go to a bodyshop!

 

Just be very careful I would say tape off everything around the one big scratch or chip, so that your only ever applying paint (in thin layers) to only the damaged parts.
