Halloweenking Chris is correct, a touchup can be done with an airbrush and alot of eyeballing, but the chances of getting an exact match are slim to none. Do to the age of the paint on the car any new paint that has not been in UV rays will look much more vibrant. Considering the location not many people will pay to much attention. All you need to do is feather the chipped area and apply the base, and with alot of light apply the rasberry candy and eyeball to see if its close to the serounding paint, do the same with the smoke and once you get a close enough match clear it and buff the entire car. The chances on getting 9yr old paint to match in both areas (rocker & chip) with the rest of the car are like I said, slim to none, but trying never hurt anyone and if you have the supplies to do it your only out time if it doesn't turn out to your satifaction.

TurboS10 I have never done it personally, but some repairs can be made with an airbrush and some time that are hard to see.

And OUCH!! that really sucks. I feel your pain.

large paint chip repair-help?

While jacking up my Vette last week the car slipped of the jack and bent the rocker panel up pretty bad and chipped the paint on the door.
I ordered a new rocker panel but I am not sure what to do about the paint chip. The chip is down low on the passenger door and is about as big as a quarter. It goes all the way to the gel coat.
The car is painted with a custom mix. It is metal flake underneath with 5 coats of raspberry clear followed by 5 coats of smoke. I have some of the paint left but it is 9 years old now. I can slop some in there with a brush in typical "touch up paint" fashion,but I am sure it will look like crud. Is there a solution?
