Default paint

With the winter season coming to an end i am finding LOTS of little chips due to rocks/salt and whatever else... pluss the ocasional door ding scraches i get from campus.

I want to get some touch-up paint to take care of it before i get rust spots all over. anyone reccamend a place to get the paint or is the Auto Zone stuff good enough.

Dealer. Pay a little more, get the right stuff. Or Sherwin Williams.

should work well, make sure you just tear it, and doa few with an angle cut and off you go, the dealership sells a nice touch up kit if your looking for one not pricey, theres a post around here somewhere, there was alot of talk about them a week or so ago
