Side Swiped... Touch Up Suggestions

Noticed this side swipe the other day. Do you think it's easy enough for a DIY touch up? If I bring it to a body shop they're probably going to have to do the entire bumper I'd think. Thoughts?

that's a pretty delicate area because it's right on the edge or bumper line..the amount of paint and clear tends to be lower on those areas than on the flat surfaces..You can touch it up, but when it comes down to wetsanding that area I wouldn't recommended...I'm sure others will tell you otherwise.

Thanks for the response. Dr. Color Chip seems to get some good reviews so that's an option.

Has anyone used DCC Titanium Silver (354)? Any good results?

Touch it up for sure or that will start rusting. If you're not happy with the Dr. Colorchip results than only choice is to paint it
