Searching for and finding the right color on our website is the same for every manufacturer. This article will provide a step by step guide to help you order your color and product. Before we start there are a two main questions you should try and have answered.
1. What is the name of the color I need to buy? (Manufacturers assign names to colors like "Velocity Red" or "Orchard White"). Though this question may be more relevant if searching for a motorcycle color, it can help with an automotive color as well. If you are unsure of the name of your color, not to worry, this is actually secondary to question number two.
2. What is the OEM color code? (Because the color names can change, OEM's need a way to reference a color that is consistent. Click here for help on finding your color code).
The primary tool on the TouchUpDirect website for finding your color is the Paint Finder. Depending on how you arrived on our site you'll ether be presented with this long version at the top of the page:
Or if you happen to land on our Home Page you will see the Paint Finder shown below:
Both of these Paint Finder tools follow the same steps. You'll need to click the dropdown menu and select either Motorcycle or Automotive, then enter the brand, year and model. Once you've filled this information in click "Start" or "Find Your Color". You should now find yourself on the pick your color section. Note: This is a long scroll page so It's important not to skip ahead.
The example below is for a 2018 Acura ILX - your page will basically be the same with the possibility of either more or less color options. Notice each color swatch has the color name as well as the color code.
Once you've selected the color you need, the page will automatically scroll to the next step shown below. This is where you'll select what product you need in order to complete your touch up repair. For a product comparison please click here.
Once you've finalized your product selection, your next step will be to pick your package. As noted, all colors do require clear coat. All of our packages include clear coat, and some will have other helpful items you may need to achieve optimum results with your touch up. If you already have clear coat and just want to order the color, you can skip to the end and select color only. The example below is shown with our touch up jar applicator. Click add to cart once ready with your selection.
Now that you have your product and package added to your cart, you can begin the checkout process. The last step before you pay is to verify the items in your cart. As you can see in the example here, we've chosen to add some latex gloves to our order. Once your items are loaded into the shopping cart, you have the ability to adjust quantities or remove items all together.
Congratulations! Your touch up order is ready for payment. Select Secure Checkout to pay with credit or debit card, or you can use your PayPal account. There is also a Pay by Amazon option as well (you'll need an active Amazon amount to use this option). If you need further assistance please feel free to contact our customer support team by clicking the link at the top right portion of this page.
