Compass Touch Up Paint

I have a couple of nicks in the front bumper of my 08 Compass. Where can you get a small bottle of touch up paint? The dealer can get it in a larger quantity but much $$. Do stores like Pep Boys or O'reilly's handle the small quantities?

As a matter of fact, O'Reilly's does stock it in the small tube. I had already bought mine at the dealer, but I did check and they do have it, it even has the paint code on the tube so you know for sure what you're getting. What quantity is your dealer offering? I just bought the small tube with the brush/pen tip.

Dealer had pint cans. Too much and too expensive unless you want to spray large parts. I found the Bright Silver Metallic PS2 at Pep Boys in the brush/pen tube. Worked just fine for $6.99! Now I have no little black marks to taint my baby's face.

It puts the paint on its skin or else it wont get the buff ball again! lol

Sounds like a good idea, I have a few nicks I could stand to see disappear!

In Canada, Canadian Tire sometimes has the touch up paint. Depends on store size.

I discovered that a Silver touch up paint for my Silver Vibe works better on my Compass than the Vibe.

My compass is the "dark khaki" on the compass website now the colour is described as "light sandstone metallic" to me it's just brown, but for buying touch up paint I want to be exact, and Canadian Tire didn't have something named either of these things. I didn't want to buy something that looked the same only to find out it was a little different when I got out to the parking lot. I have a small scratch on the plastic bumper that I know wont rust, and no one can tell, but we all know (it means something to us drivers), any other "sandstone" drivers on here, please let me know what you have found to be the perfect paint to match our baby's

If you look at the sticker on the inside of your driver's door, your paint code will be listed there, and it will look similar to this: http://www.automotivetouchup.com/paint-codes/jeep.htm. If you give them the actual code, they should be able to help you. Good luck!
