What Tools Do I Need for a Subaru Touch Up Paint Job?

subaru Touch Up Paint Tools including Polishing compound, sand paper, clearcoat, basecoat, primer and wax and grease remover wipe
To create the best looking coat and color for your vehicle, we recommend the following:

PRIMER, COLOR, AND CLEARCOAT - These three coats create your paint job. It goes without saying that you need paint in your kit to do a touch up paint job. Clearcoat provides a thin protective layer for your Subaru paint job, while Primer is required for damage that has reached the original base material.

WAX AND GREASE REMOVER CLOTH - The wax and grease remover cloth is used to remove wax, grease, and contaminants before painting.

SANDPAPER - Wet sanding the affected area removes rust and prepares the surface with a rough finish.

POLISHING COMPOUND - The polishing compound smooths everything out with a factory-grade finish.

These quality paint tools are all available with our Platinum Kit but can be purchased separately on the TouchUpDirect website.

Subaru history and information

Subaru's Story

Subaru is a Japanese auto manufacturer operating under the parent company Fuji Heavy Industries. The name chosen to represent the automotive division of the conglomerate, Subaru, is meaningful for many reasons. Subaru is the Japanese name for the M45 star cluster in the Pleiades. This group of stars is referred to as The Seven Sisters. The interesting part is that one of them is reportedly said to be invisible, which explains the six stars in the Subaru logo. Coincidentally, the logo also represents the six companies that united to create the Fuji group. 

Keeping in line with the theme, Subaru began as an aircraft research laboratory. Their move into the vehicle industry came as they used aircraft spare parts to build scooters, the Fuji Rabbit. The CEO quickly decided to focus the production to car making. Subaru employed many inventions they acquired in their aeronautical division and they offered them as a standard on their cars. This can be said as much as their famous horizontally opposed boxer engines. Subaru can also be credited by the standard use of the all-wheel drive technology in the vast majority of their lineup. This fact and the Subaru Impreza made the brand a large favorite for the rally car category.

In recent times, the company uses its development powers for environmental protection. They reorganized their Indiana plant in a way to attain the status of a zero landfill factory. Subaru also developed a program to recycle their end-of-life cars which is made possible due to the fact that most of the parts used to make the cars are recyclable. They also further their research to provide fuel efficient, low emission cars as much as possible.
