Grabber Blue touch-up paint?

So sometime in the past couple weeks some jerkhole scraped along my front bumper, it doesn't look like it was backed into because it's not at that peak point, it's off to one side along that leading edge and it digs down to black plastic and then begins to narrow out until it's just yellow beigish coloring ;_;

I've looked at like auto parts stores and no one has grabber blue touch up paint. I got some HP white from the dealer back in the day and it was like $20 compared to like $5 at the auto parts store.

Anyone know if there is someone that has it or am I stuck getting gouged by the dealer?

Dealers these days tend to only stock the pens which IMO are uselss unless you have a massive chip.

I usually buy bottle from paintscratch.com as you can get larger bottles.

yeah I always find the pen useless too. they also unscrew and have a little brush in them but you gotta be really handy with a brush. I usually just use the paint and then a really fine detailing brush used for painting.

I bought some GB paint from Dr Colorchip and it matched perfectly, plus no globs like with regular touchup paint.

Do you (or anyone) have any tips for applying touchup paint with these pens? I got touchup paint (I got lucky - my salesman bought it for me 2 days after I bought my car) from my dealer for a small chip in my door handle. I applied it, but wasn't satisfied. Just curious if there's any useful techniques/tips to making this stuff blend a little better?

Rubberize Primer

If you are respraying a plastic (rubber) bumper, make sure you apply rubberized primer, not metal primer.

Try expresspaint.com I bought a rattle can of Race Red to paint side scoops and the clear to go with it and it was a PERFECT match. I cant tell the difference between the factory paint and the paint on the side scoops. They have all Ford colors I believe.
