Just scratched the roof of my Element with the end of a roof rack bar :cry: Any tips on touching it up? I've never used the touch up pen.

Okay I can only tell you what my dealership did....

The Car Wash place chipped the paint on my driver's door....very small, but horrific to me none the less. So I took my E in to get an estimate....the manager of the auto body shop told me that he could write me an estimate for the repairs if I wanted to get the entire door resurfaced, but he said that he wouldn't recommend it. He offered to touch it up for free....all he did was touch it up with about three coats....and then he said the next time I was at the dealership he would lightly sand it down and apply a top coat....which he did and you can barely notice it at all anymore.

Good Luck!
