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

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

SANDPAPERWet sanding the affected area removes rust and prepares the surface with a rough finish so the car 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.

Mazda history and information

Mazda's Story

Taking its name after Ahura Mazda the God of Wisdom, was a sign of audacity but for the Mazda Motor Corporation this bet paid off. It is now in the top 25 largest automobile makers in the world but it was not always as successful. Mazda's first automobiles were three wheeled trucks and for a long time it was Mazda's only model. 

Born from a desire to set Mazda apart from its other Japanese competitors, it developed cars powered by the Wankel rotary engine. Once again this boldness was rewarded by a good success and a loyal following. This rotary engine allowed for more power at a lighter weight than the more ordinary piston engines.

With the rising cost of gas and the increased concern for the environment, Mazda eventually returned to the piston engines. However, the company has never let go of its forward thinking and is currently experimenting with hydrogen-powered cars.

As a proud owner, you can show your loyalty to your Mazda by using TouchUpDirect touch up paint. By doing so, you also support Mazda's interest in the environment because our Mazda touch up paint is eco-friendly.
