Automotive touchup 100% Match

Well i was told that this website http://www.automotivetouchup.com/ has the paint for our cars and it matchs very well, something like 95% to 98% . Today i was bored and i decided to paint the engine bay covers with a spray paint can from then color code KY1, since i only have one can. I did this just as a test to see if they as good for our cars as some of you said. I didn't get to paint the whole engine with it but i did the two little covers and I must admit I am very happy with the color to me is about 99%, never mind I think is 100% it even has the glitter that our cars have when they are new. I am very happy and will order 2 more cans to do the rest of my engine covers. Here is some pictures of the covers I did and the can i use.

P.S Remenber that I took this pictures with a blackberry phone not the best but if you dont trust me when i say its a good place to get your paint then just get one can of it like i did, now i will order from there every time lol.

Punctuation is your friend.

But that looks good, I was thinking of getting a can from them as well, but didn't know how well they match our factory paint.

Looks pretty good. You have a pic of the whole engine bay or did you just get finished with one or two pieces.

I just got one can of the paint to test it out so I only did 2 covers, I will get 2 more cans and do the whole bay, and then I will take the pic of the whole engine.

You know why you can't paint with a steady hand. You need to get off that stuff and stay off of it, and your hands would be steady!

Lol!!! Just kidding.

That paint does match quite well. Good job to the OP.

I'm sure he's gonna make the bumper fit your ride perfectly along with the fog lights you were mentioning before.

mis-labeled paint from Automotive Touchup

Automotive Touchup may provide good color matches in general, but be careful with this company/service. I recommend Paintscratch.com


Be very careful with this company.. I ordered KT3 in October of 2014 for a planned repair of my sister's Nissan. Unfortunately, she did not make the car available to me for the repair until October of this year!.. (so much for planning ahead). After completing the repair (rust removal), and taking the can of KT3 to apply the paint, I discovered that I was sent a KY0 or some other bright silver color. The can says KT3, but the color isn't even close to KT3... Upon calling Automotive touchup, they said that since it's been over 60 days since I placed the order, they won't do anything..
This is an expensive can of paint, and my point is that I should get what I paid for whether it's 60 days or 365 days!
