regards to touchup. well its very difficult to get silver metallic to sit correct even spraying it. non the less brushing it. just remember to do lite coats. this will prevent running down the bumper.
true, and do not try to spray just that place, i did it on my TiAg e92 i had some tiag paint and masked of the spot and sprayed it. It looked horrible. Silver I'm mostly metallic and thats what gives it its color, you even spray it on at a different angle and its another color. only when the whole bumper is painted does it look good because all way don't in the same directions. just use some touch paint and go little by little. then maybe buff it if it looks too rough.
