Our crew here at Doug Smith Kia would like to pass on tips for touching up the paint chips on the exterior of your vehicle.

Wet a clean cloth with a soapy mix, rub in circular motions to get any of the debris or dirt out from the inside of the chip. Place a small amount of polishing compound on the chip, rub with your cloth in an effort to soften the edges of the paint around the chip. This will allow the new paint to blend in more easily.

Use the small brush in the touch up paint to fill that chip. You can use a wooden toothpick to fill the chip if it is really small. The goal here is getting paint into the chip only. Less is more, it will help blend into the surrounding paint when you only use a small dab.

Bring your vehicle to Doug Smith Kia when you need any mechanical issues addressed.
