After reading some things i have a simple question for touch up on my paint. I want to fix some chips on my hood, egg marks from people egging my car, and other chips but i don't know that to get. Should i buy factory paint from a dealer? Most likely over priced, but i will do what it takes to get these marks gone. Or another option is to buy that chip fixing s**t at autozone or a product like Dr. ColorChip or similar. I just want some knowledge on what will look best, easiest to do, and will make me happy.

I used the duplicolor touch up pen and if you use it a couple times (coats) you cant notice the chips at all unless your a foot away looking for them. I have always had good results from the galaxy silver duplicolor(fenders too). Just my experiences though.
