#163 of 166 Color coded paint for 98 Camry LE
Jul 24, 2007 (8:50 am)
I inherit a 98 Camry from my aunt as I just got my licence.
The car is with 116K on but run great. I love that car but there are scraches on the body. In order to prevent rusty and make it look prettier, I want to match paint color and try to spray and cover them. Can I do it myself? How to match the paint color -- order it from dealer or thru hardware store/body shop. It is green(dark/forest green)
Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I got some rain-x for my winshield and accidently got some on my car paint. I wiped it off but is there anything else I need to do to protect the paint. I had waxed the car just before using the rainx so maybe that'll protect the paint.

I don't think there's anything to worry about, especially since you cleaned it right off, and the car has been waxed.

Spraying is difficult and will likely make the car look worse. I'd buy a bottle of touch-up brush paint. (The brush is built into the cap.) You may be able to find the matching color at Wal-Mart or an auto parts store; otherwise order it from a Toyota dealer.
If the scratches have exposed the bare metal, and rust has started to form, you have to remove the rust first, with sandpaper or a very small wire brush.
