Honda Touch-Up Paint

Honda Touch-Up Paint

There are two types of people: The ones that buy a “universal” product and the ones who want a product custom made for their vehicle. 

For the custom-made guys, Honda’s touch-up paint is the thing you’re looking for, if you have a Honda of course. 

Obviously, before you use a product such as this one, you need to ensure that your car matches precisely. Otherwise, it is not going to look as good.

The drawback of this touch-up paint pen is that it’s the exact OEM color.

If you don’t know what that means let me put it this way: After sometime, your vehicle’s colour ages and fades, thus, if you paint it with the exact OEM colour the new paint will be darker than yours right now.
