What kind of touch up paint should I use to cover up the dings and scratches on my hood and side molding?

duplicolor is best but the age of your cars paint may have faded. Try a less obvious area to test the color match before leaving a noticeble blob on your car

ditto... I used the Dulpicolor paint pen from CT.... works really well.
I also bought the little kit.... haven't used that yet.. but it looks promising.

I wouldnt even play the game with any of the store bought paints. Go to your local paint supply shop with your WA code in your trunk and get a 1/2 pint of single stage paint. Use this for all of your touchup work.
