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

dodge 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.

How to find your Dodge Paint Code?

How to Find Your Dodge Paint Code

Depending on your Dodge model or year, the Dodge color code can be in different locations but it will be on the manufacturer sticker. On most Dodge models the color code is either on the driver side door jamb or on the firewall (passenger, center or driver side). After looking at these locations, it is worth looking in front of the radiator, behind the battery or under the passenger seat panel, particularly if you have a Caravan or a truck. The Dodge color code is normally three characters long and can contain both letters and numbers which you can find on the bottom left corner of the sticker beside "PNT". Dodge Paint Code Examples: PBV/HBV, WS2/PS2, PRM/JRM
