What tools do I need for a BMW touch up paint job?

bmw Touch Up Paint Tools including Polishing compound, sand paper, clearcoat, basecoat, primer and wax and grease remover wipe

To create the best looking coat for your vehicle, we recommend the following:

PRIMER, COLOR, AND CLEARCOAT - It goes without saying that you need paint to do a touch up paint job. Clearcoat provides a thin protective layer for your 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 so the paint can stick better.

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

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

BMW history and information

BMW Story

Although BMW started its business with the production of aircraft engines, the company soon developed an expertise in motorcycles and cars. This evolution led the company to be part of the German big three luxury car brands. Their skillful engineers and precise manufacturing allowed BMW to break record after record of speed and performance while maintaining a high level of class and design. The Bavarian Motor Works took inspiration from its aircraft days to design its rounded logo. The round form represents propeller blades turning against the blue sky but it's also a wink to the white and blue colors of the Bavarian flag. BMW is so stylish that British spy James Bond even drove one in the 1999 movie "The World Is Not Enough”.
