Tools and Supplies You'll Need

  1. Touch-up Paint
  2. Paintbrush
  3. Damp Rag


To do this project you will need to use the touch-up paint that is made for your panels. We recommend practicing this on a scrap piece before working on your panels.

1.) Depending on what color panel you have, there may be multiple colors in your touch up kit.

2.) Size, color and depth of the area to be touched up, will determine which touch up colors to use.

3.) Dilute the touch-up paint with water as needed to have a workable consistency.

4.) You might have to mix different colors to achieve different shades. Add water as needed and dab excess paint off for a more transparent look. Apply a small amount of diluted paint to moist cloth, small brush, sponge, or Q-tip.

5.) Start with lighter colors first, let color dry 10 to 15 minutes before applying the darker shades. Dab into desired area. If applied to undamaged areas, wipe quickly with clean damp cloth.

6.) Wipe excess paint off immediately. It is better to apply multiple thin coats of paint in small translucent shades and gradually darken the area to blend in. Keep dabbing and blending with a clean, damp cloth until the repaired area blends in with its surroundings.
