hard top touch up paint

im starting to get some pretty serious scratches on my black hard top. most of the time scratches dont really bother me especially if there is a story behind them, but most of these are from taking the top off and on.

so what is a paint that matches the stock top color pretty good?

Same here. I was thinking of getting the top sprayed with bead liner.

I use whatever brand flat black I can get my hands on at wally world. I just bed lined the interior. I am thinking about doing the outside as well.

sharpies work wonders.

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.

sand the whole thing with a 3m pad...wipe down the denatured alcohol, paint with primer, then paint with desired color.. then you have a good color to use on touch ups.
