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

mgb 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 MGB Paint Code?

How to find your MGB Paint Code?

Locating the paint code for your MG car can be a little tricky since some older models do not have the code on the car but if it is present, it will be found on the Vehicle Identification Sticker (VIN). Most likely it will be on the driver or passenger door side. The code normally starts with the letter "B" and two or three other letters and is followed by one or more numbers.

MG Paint Code Examples: BLBK1, BLVC7, BLGN25
