Default Touch up paint/diy vehicle spray paint

Think I may spend the 7.50 for a small can just to touch up some areas on my vehicle. Questions I have is....I can get color vehicle matched easily but how you guys experience with this? How well did it work? How long it lasted? Did it turn a diff color after awhile, etc.

Looks like the clearcoat(?) is starting to peel off.....think that's what it is anyway. Really thin see thru layer top of the paint just coming off.

Its not gonna look right and its not just about color matching but you also have to blend it with the panels near the area where you are painting so it doesn't look like you just sprayed some spots. It probably wont last long.

I used to run a detail shop in the 90s, if you match your color code the color is fine, but the technique you use is the tricky part.
Less is more - The huge azz brush they give in the bottle, DO NOT use it - do not overlap the edges of the good paint.
Maybe you could post a picture cause clear coat peeling tends to continue and depending where it is touch up may look poor.
They do make a little ball point pen type applicator, prob expensive, but its tits for chips and dings. I see the touch up guy use it every week when I am listing the cars.

Just use paper matches, the opposite side you light to apply the paint.
When you rip them out of the book they have a fuzzy edge that spreads the paint evenly w/o big heavy build-up.
Only fill with the least amount of paint possible since a build-up is what catches the eye 1st.
If you are doing it like white out or painting nails, you are probably doing it wrong or you need more than a touch-up.

I've touched up other peoples rock chips.. it last a long time. but I'm very careful not to put more paint in the rock chip than the thickness of the original layers of paint.
each chip takes at least 2 minutes..

Well the clear coat was a separate issue. I cannot fix that unless I have the entire vehicle repainted.

However I got several spots on my rig that shows the primer...a sign the paint peeled off.
