Thumbs up paint touch up

i have my side mirrors beaten up by rocks,,, so why not paint them??? i looked around and found an auto parts store called .. carquest... they had a custom paint dept. right there..... so i says can you match this??? o ya , your color is mars red..... 15 , 20 min. tops.. he comes out with what looks like a lunch box,,, places it on my hood in 3 different spots,,, kinda scans the hood,,, and says come back in 15............... so i come back and he hands me a small bottle for touch up and a spray can , i says well its red, does it have any uv protectant in it? he say its state of the art car paint, auto body shops use the same stuff. let it dry for a week or more in the sun before you buff it to a shine, in other words ..let it cure.....ok. well i spray the mirrors last sunday... boy o boy what a color match .... right on...

cost me $20.00

buffin the mirrors maybe this weekend
