Touch Up Paint

Looking for touch-up paint for my ’05 QC flame red. Is the code PR4? If so, any suggestions where to get some?

When you are dead, you don’t know you are dead. It is difficult only for others. It is the same way when you are stupid.

Unless you can find out the supplier the dealer stuff would be your best bet....The non OEM stuff is sometimes a good match but usually is a lil off...just my .02$

I'd try the dealers bottle as well and it is indeed PR4 Flame Red/Poppy Red
The only way to repair chips or scratches correctly, obviously, is a repaint but often that's not cost efficient or its an area that can be touched up inconspicuously. Even the absolute correct matched color will not match due to the chip or scratch indentation compared to the surrounding good paint creates a different reflection of light, in turn making the color look off.

Best place is paintscratch.com they are in Vegas and usually have it in about a week, you can buy small touch up bottles and/or even a spray can if trying to do a bigger area, also buy clear coat and some supplies...never had any trouble with their matching, always correct....my $.02
