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

volvo 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 Volvo Paint Code?

How to Find Your Volvo Paint Code

When looking for your Volvo paint color, keep in mind that the code is composed of numbers, usually three. You can start your search on the firewall, the driver or passenger side strut tower, the radiator support or even the driver side door jamb. These Volvo paint color codes can be a little tricky to find as nothing really indicates their presence, so we suggest that you use our paint finder to confirm your findings.
