Default paint re-touching



im trying to touch these spots up on my white 92 see bonnie. the spot by the door sorrounding the window is all chipped off and i was wondering if i could just use some glossy spray paint from murray'* auto store. or is there some type of paint code for this black color.also would i have to sand it down and all that or could i just spray over it.

http://putfile.com/pic.php?pic=6/1530228569.jpg&*=f5 By the B pillar there I went to Walmart and went to the care section and got the Dulicolor (sp?) paint touch up pen with the brush. I got the universal black and it works great for that spot. I had a few chips and some other stuff right there to touch up. It'* not perfect but you can't see it was even touched up till your right up near the car.

Discussing paint for that part is ridiculous when you consider the fact that it'* not even painted. It'* an acrylic/vinyl overlay.

And the part is very inexpensive.

Tell us which one is bad (front door or rear door, driver'* or passenger'*) and we'll give you the part number for a new part, or you can go to a wrecker and get one.

Part should be about $25 new. No more than $10 at a wrecker.

You have two front doors. Your car is white, so the one pictured isn't yours, and we don't know which SIDE you're talking about.

Please clarify.

Conceivably, if you can afford some masking tape and find a newspaper, you can actually mask off the areas surrounding this part and paint it while leaving it on the car.
