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

lexus 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 Lexus models, 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 Lexus 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 Lexus paint surface with a rough finish so the Lexus color 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.

Lexus history and information

Lexus' Story

The origin story of Lexus is almost worthy of a spy novel. You can trace back the inception of Lexus to 1983, a secret meeting in Toyota's headquarters. During this gathering, Toyota launched a secret project code named "flagship-1". Toyota went as far as renting a house on the beach in California to research the lifestyle and taste of the American upper-class. After years of research and development and investing around one billion dollars, Lexus announced its first model; the Lexus LS at the North American Auto Show in Detroit in 1989 which was an immediate success. The thing is, the Lexus approach to car making was completely different from fellow Japanese luxury brand, Acura. Instead of simply rebranding their Toyota models with enhanced features, Lexus designs were unique. They were designed by Lexus from A to Z. The Lexus LS was silent, had an ergonomic styling and a top of its class reliability that allowed the brand to offer fierce competition to the European imports like BMW and Mercedes-Benz. Subsequently, Lexus was the first luxury brand to enter the Japanese market. While earlier Lexus models were criticized for their lackluster design that emanated the Japanese culture of pure lines and simplicity, the recent models are more inspired by the German style. Lexus developed more sporty styles and prioritized hybrid powered vehicles. Although Lexus treatment of the body is always tasteful, the vehicle line is renowned for the quality and comfort of its interiors. The "Lexus Must" includes leather seats, enhanced temperature control in the binnacle and premium audio systems. Their slogan definitely applies here, Lexus is "The Pursuit of Perfection".
