1. Pearl White Multi-Coat Touch-Up Paint

One of the finest touch-up paint colors in the market, the pearl white multi-coat is an excellent choice for hiding dirt and minor scratches. This is because most scratches are a light color, easily concealed with either silver or white touch-up paints. 

Save for being one of the more inexpensive options in the market, the pearl white multi-coat touch-up paint also scores highly when it comes to ease or care.

2. Deep Blue Metallic Touch-Up Paint

The deep blue metallic color is in its true element during daytime. This is because it pops up in conditions of bright sunlight.

However, you may notice a difference in appearance during nighttime because it takes on a more purplish appearance.

The silver metallic color is also effective at concealing dirt, particularly during the winter. It is easy to keep up over time and does not fade, unlike darker shades.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you are having a hard time finding the right touch-up paint for your car, you are not alone. Read on for answers to some of the common questions about Tesla’s touch-up paints. 

How Can I Ensure the Touch-Up Color Matches My Car?

One of the common challenges of selecting the right touch-up color is finding the right option that matches perfectly with your car. It is important to remember that when buying a touch-up paint online, the image provided may not match the actual paint color of your vehicle.

You can ensure the touch-up color matches your car by verifying that you are buying the correct option. Make sure you compare the color code of your car’s paint and the color code on the touch-up paint before placing an order.

A common cause of this mismatch might be that the color on the computer screen is either darker or lighter than it actually is, depending on your viewing angle. Your eyes can also deceive you so to be on the safe side, I recommend making sure the color code on the touch-up paint matches your car’s.

How Do I Locate My Tesla’s Color Code?

You can locate your Tesla’s color code by checking the identification sticker on the car. Follow these steps to locate this identification sticker:

  • Open the driver-side door of the car.
  • Look for the sticker at the bottom of the pillar.

What Do I Need To Begin Painting Touch-Up?

Doing your touch-up work is only recommended if you have a good understanding or experience in spray painting. If you are a beginner, consider taking your car to paint experts because you risk turning simple scratches into potentially costly repair work. 

To begin painting touch-up, purchase the Tesla paint repair kit compatible with your car. It should come with the following:

  • One 0.5-ounce (14.1748-gram) OEM paint bottle
  • One 1-ounce (28.34-gram) bottle of blending solution
  • One squeegee
  • One micro brush
  • One ultra brush
  • One wiping cloth
  • One microfiber towel

This kit provides everything you need to cover up paint chips and debris and clean up after completing the touch-up for a smooth, finished appearance. 

EV Speedy’s Take

I recommend getting matching touch-up paint for your car to maintain that nice, clean look.

Ensure that the touch-up paint’s four-letter code matches the color code located on your car’s information sticker for a seamless blend.
