I also have "earth" and did similar damage. My body shop went to his paint distributor and was able to get small bottle of touch up paint. Used it twice, since I seem to have a propensity to ride onto those stupid parking barriers.

Thanks for the input. I'll check with my local body shop and see what he can do. I understand that Dupont makes the paint for Fisker.

The paint is made by DuPont the paint is a three stage process . Base coat color mid coat the glass then the clear coat . Local body shops try to match the color in house but I haven't found a body shop yet that can do a in house mix due to the three stage paint .The only colors my body shop have been able to match in house is the black and white. The rest get ordered from DuPont one quart cost around $425.00

And here we thought that the "diamonds" in the paint were merely from recycled mirrors.
