what did it look like before? From the picture, I'm not even sure where you touched up your paint.

yeah man, you gotta show us before and after pics to judge something like that. plus, the pic is way to small to tell if there are any imperfections.

Looks like a good job. Did you use the old paint and brush method, or another one. I assume you got the touch-up paint from the dealer.

Now I can detect the scratch. Does your fingernail catch in it? Like Scubajag said, what was your process? It does look good though and you had to point it out to us so that's not bad!

my finger nail does not catch in it . the only thing that i dont like about it is that dirt is more likely do get developed in that area 3x more than the rest of the body
but after all its better than without
