    This thread has given enough confidence on small paint touch ups. Looks like this thread has created enough buzz that the website is ran out of stock for TW color.....!!!!

    BTW is there any DIY method for removing small dents ( I guess, I am dreaming big....)?

    Of course. The new value pack from COM-Paint contains a body filler too. This is to be applied over the small dent with an applicator and leveled with the surface and let to dry, after which the painting is done. Unfortunately I do not have the new value pack with me, I am going to order one soon. :)

    Myself and Ramjn tried this a while back and failed miserably. So didn't want to take any more chances and got the entire bumper re-painted, however mine was a bit bigger. I've some more smaller one's now and may be should try it - I'm quickly searching for DRIV3R's home address ;)

    A word of caution guys. Those of you who own metallic colored Fiats in particular. (Any color except BNW, HHB, ER)

    I tried the same DIY with the 75HP which is Minimal Grey in color and failed quite a bit. It is very difficult to match the shade, because, just one second of more spray and you have a thicker shade and more metallic particles on the surface. So, stay away and use this only when absolutely necessary to say, stop some rusting or whatever.

    Mistakes I did.

    1) Sprayed a generous quantity going by the BNW touch-up experience
    2) Spraying a clear lacquer coat over and mess it up even more

    Hope this helps.
