FS: Titanium Silver Touch-up Paint

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
Looking for $25 shipped within the lower 48.

12.5 oz spray can with extra nozzles. Used maybe 2% to cover a 3" scratch on the bumper of my last car.

Bought it from paintscratch.com for $24.95 & $8.95 shipping ($33.90). From what I read, these guys have the best touch up paint.

"Titan Silver Metallic Clearcoat 354"

No Sorry.
How good it looks depends on the quality of work you put into prep and finish.

can i see a pic of how it worked on your car?

are you ever in the LA area or always in Ventura? I live in OC so i'm guessing it'll probably be cheaper to mail it USPS?

I respoded to your first question above. paintscratch.com is known for having a spot on color match. If your OEM paint has faded, that's a different story.

I work in Burbank and sometimes run out to DTLA, but that's as far as I go. Prob easiest to just mail it.

For the benefit of anyone else interested:
I just masked & sprayed a curb scratch under my front bumper the day I turned the car into the dealer.

It was a rough job but it looked good enough for them not say anything about it. I just masked it a bit, shot it with some basic gray primer and then sprayed it with TIAG.

If you know (from me and others around the forums) that the paint match is OEM, why would a picture of this be so crucial?

crucial because i considered buying it? i don't know about you, but it isn't that much of a hassle for me to walk out to the car, take a picture, and upload it. that's all.

I don't think you're understanding me. The car was returned to the dealer (BMW buyback) 2 hours after I painted it - never saw it again. (That was 6 months ago) I didn't bother to take a pic at the time, because I didn't have any need to. I honestly don't care if I sell this. I just figured it'd be useful for another forum member here. Anyone who knows about this product doesn't need pics. Anyone who hasn't heard of them before does research to see what others have to say about it.

Did a Google search...

I don't know about you, but that was good enough for me before I bought it.

yeah, it doesn't appear you mentioned anything about having returned the car until this point.
