Saab Touch Up Paint
The 1949 Saab 92 that left the assembly line was in fact the fourth Ursaab or original Saab prototype developed. The 92 model was enough of a hit that in 1955 the company gave it a face lift. The result, Saab 93, was the first model decorated with the company's signature trapezoid front grille and gained a bit of power with its engine going from a two-cylinder to a three-cylinder.
During the next decade, the brand saw success with its Saab 96, another iteration of the 92, as it started to massively export its cars. However, the real victory came with the Saab 99 in 1968. This model was the first model in nineteen years to be awarded with a fully redesigned body. The turbocharged model also featured a wrap around windshield, headlight washer and side-impact door beams that set the company for a merger with commercial constructor Scania-Vabis AB.
The early ‘70s was hit with the oil crisis and Saab was not spared the hardships experienced by the automobile industry. To revitalize its car lineup, Saab signed a deal with Italian car maker Fiat. From this cooperation came the Saab 9000 to the Alfa Romeo 164, the Fiat Chroma and the Lancia Thema, the company's first high-end model. These models all shared the same Type Four chassis as well as many other parts that could be exchanged between the models.
These efforts did not prove to be enough for the brand and it separated from Scania to form a different entity where 50% of its shares were sold to GM in 1989. Following this joint venture, Saab launched the new 900 with a relative amount of success but it was not enough to prevent the purchase of the remaining 50% shares in the company. Further complications arose in 2008 when GM's operations were severely shaken by the financial crisis. This situation forced the company to put Saab on the market once again.

What tools do I need for a Saab 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.
