  1. "Metallic" effect on paint touch-up?

    Interior / Exterior
    Hi Everyone I needed to do some touch-up to my Black-Mica (color code 16W) Mazda and I got the DupliColor "Perfect Match" for that color + the clear top coat. While the color really matches, I notice that the original paint has some "metallic sparkles" that the DupliColor paint do not provide...
  2. Touch-up paint recommendations

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    I have a few chips I need to touch up and wondered what your experiences have been with various touch-up paint options. I know you can get paint pens from the dealership. But what else? I've seen some kits online that include base, mid, and clear coat with a little brush too. What have you used...
  3. Wheel Touch-up Paint

    Dealer was nice enough to hack up one of my wheels. FYI- Honda/Acura Satin Silver Matallic is a near perfect match. Code NH 623M. The factory paint. Not Duplicolor!
  4. Touchup Paint, Wax, and Paint Sealent

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    Happy Thanksgiving Mazda fans! I'm hoping to get my vehicles prepped for winter in the near future. Touch up a couple of scratches, give it a good wash, and wax all around. My first question is what touch up paint you guys recommend? I've attached a couple pictures of the scratches. The one on...

    Sorry for the cross-post, but this appears to be more relevant here than in 2014+ Mazda 3 Skyactiv Appearance & Interior > Wheel touch-up paint? I picked up my new 2015 sGT HB on Friday, and I've already kissed a drive-through curb with my rim (stock 18" wheels). Do you guys have a touch-up...

    I picked up my new 2015 sGT HB on Friday, and I've already kissed a drive-through curb with my rim (stock 18" wheels). Do you guys have a touch-up paint or treatment system that you recommend? Thanks! Mike
  7. Touch-up paint

    Hello again everyone, My '09 Mazda 3s has accumulated quite a few paint chips and scratches on the front and trunk area from daily use. I have gotten some paint from my local dealership and I was just wondering if someone has done it before and has any pointers before I do it? -Dylan
  8. Paint touch-up pens

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    I was wondering if anyone here has used the paint touch up pens with the applicator or one side and clear brush on the other? Im talking about the ones matched by colour code. How well do they work for small repairs?
  9. Touch-up Paint? Rear-ended...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Appearance & Interior
    So, I was trying to get off the highway the other night at a 4-leaf clover and a car that was trying to merge on refused to yield to me as I was trying to get off. I had my blinker on, trying to take my exit, and this guy wouldn't slow down or speed up, he just kept matching my speed the whole...
  10. Painted Wheels (touchup)?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hello Everyone, I know a few of you have painted tires yourself and I have a question for you all. Is there anyway you can touch up the painted rims without having to sand and repaint? I used Duplicolor Graphite on my car and it looks awesome, but I believe driving on the highway with rock salt...
  11. Touchup Paint Code

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi, Just wonder if anyone even order Touch-Up Paint? I ordered one for Velocity Red Mica. I pick it up from dealer today. It looks right from the bottle. The color code form car is 27A, but the number from the bottle top is 87. Is this same color? Thank you. Fox
  12. My 3 was hit as I watched... touch-up paint question

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Discussion
    Was sitting in the bar with the 3 right out front and watch some douchenozzle try to parallel park in front of it and smack right into the front-left of the car, he might have been a bit tipsy since his angle to park was way off and he didn't hit the brakes, hitting the mazda at 3-4 mph. I ran...
