Default Paint touch-ups?

Does Honda sell little paint touch-up bottles?

Somebody took a couples small nicks out of the paint on my front passenger door today.

I'm pretty sure it happened at work--I'm pretty irritated that coworker wouldn't leave a note or anything.

I've already been rear-ended and had that fixed. It seems like the world is conspiring not to let me keep my car nice.

I'm looking at either
http://www.hondapartsdeals.com/produ...touch-up-paint
or
Honda Touch-up Paint: Pen (Civic) - Bernardi Honda Parts and Accessories

I haven't ordered any yet, but it would be good to keep on hand.

Paint codes from the service manual are:
NH-756P Spectrum White Pearl
NH-700M Alabaster Silver Metal
NH-737M Polished Metal Metallic
NH-731P Crystal Black Pearl
BG-53M Clear Sky Blue Metallic
B-537M Atomic Blue Metallic
R-525P Tango Red Pearl

Do you think my local dealership would have this on hand? I'm sure they'd charge a mark-up, but it might be worth it to me to get it sooner.

If I had a nick (seeing metal) I'd get it cleaned and painted ASAP. So the markup would be worth it. The dealer should have these. I haven't checked mine yet. I've been lucky so far, but thinking about it.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking.

Got mine at the dealership. A truck on 95 kicked back a rock at me, which dinged up my roof I believe the bottle was $7.

Somehow i have a weird scratch on my right back passenger side.

Its a few inch's long most of it is kind of a white scratch then there is a small part of it that has rust on it.

Now when I go to patch my EXN Polished metal insight up do i need to do anything special before hand to this Rust spot that appeared after whatever scratched my car?

Just wondering if paint touch up on it is the only step necessary.. I am thinking the rust spot happened from whatever scratched my car and not that my car is rusting itself.

You have rust on it? That a bad scratch. Normally what you shoudl do is get fine grit sand paper and lighlty polish the rust and 1mm to either side until it's off the body then apply the paint and then the clear coat to even it out.

I've never had a steady enough hand to get evernything leveled out and pretty after such a repair. However, I had one done by a relative with very steady hands and it looked as good as new, so it's possible.

Update: If you think it's from the other car you can try to clean the area first with a soft cloth and some dish soap and water like you would before you wax the car yourself. If it doesn't come off the above will work, as long as it's fine grit (1600 or higher) you work on it slowly so you don't take out too much.
