Anyone ever use touch up paint?

So I had a STUPID, STUPID incident happen today.

Pulled into a gas station lot put the bike in neutral, am just sitting there with my feet planted on the ground I go to walk the bike back from a standstill and didn't notice that there was a bunch of gravel next to my right foot that sloped JUST slightly to the right about 10 inches. Bike dipped to the right and I QUICKLY tried to save her but it was too late. She didn't SLAM on the ground at all but I gently cradled her to the ground.

End result, 3 VERY, VERY small scratches on the right fairing. I'm a bit of a perfectionist so I'm considering ordering a new fairing if touch up paint will look like .

Any of you guys ever use touch up paint? What brands do you use and are they even worth it?

Colorite is pretty much a perfect match.

If the scratches need touch up paint, I don't think you can consider them "small." Slight scratches should buff out with NuFinish.

NFL uses touch "down" paint - -- - It's the long line just as you reach the end zone.

First one is always tough but meh rock chips etc will happen.
Sure, I've been called a xenophobe, but the truth is, I'm not. I honestly just feel that America is the best country and the other countries aren't as good. That used to be called patriotism.

yeah. I thought it'd be like riding with a condescending rossi.
