Maserati Touch Up Paint
That same year, the brothers could validate their expertise as their first Maserati in production won the Targa Florio. The company's logo was drawn by Mario, the artist in the family. Mario took inspiration in a fountain in his home town of Bologna depicting the Roman God Neptune. Neptune's trident was deemed an appropriate symbol for the car as Neptune represents both strength and vigor but is also the patron of horse-racing.
Unfortunately, Alfieri Maserati died in 1932 due to health issues. However, the Maserati brothers continued making cars and registering them in races. Five years later, the brothers sold their shares in the company to the Adolfo Orsi family who then proceeded to move Maserati to Modena. The Maserati brothers continued working for the business and the cars kept winning races. They could even hold their own against the big Germans. They proved it in 1939 and 1940 when they won the Indianapolis 500, and they are, to this day the only Italian manufacturer to do so. However, following a tragic racing accident that happened in 1957, the company retired from racing competitions.
The brand continued selling cars for private racers but focused its production on grand tourer, allowing passengers to make long-distance, high-speed journeys in style and comfort. The sixties brought a series of new models from the street car target, including the iconic Ghibli. In the late decade, the company changed owners once again as it was bought by the French Citroen. This takeover came with a great deal of technological exchange between the two car makers, the French gained an engine and the Italians received the hydraulics. Alas the financial difficulties that the 1973 oil crisis carried led to the partition of the alliance.
Saved by the government, Maserati was purchased by the former racing driver Alessandro de Tomasso, also owner of the motorcycle company Benelli. It was not until Fiat took over the company in 1993 that the brand was restored to its former glory.

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