    Dual stage vs single stage for touch-ups - please help !!

    Black metallic, dual stage paint...
    I've noticed that when doing minor knick fixes with a cotton swab coated with just the base coat....with activator...
    and after curing, then sanding (2000 grit), and polishing with M-85, then M-105, the finish just does not match the clear-coated finish exactly.
    Should I be touching-up with a SINGLE stage version of the color for these minor knicks ?

    Hi syswizard,

    Touch up paint can be challenging. Unfortunately I do not have much advice for you : (
