Agreed, I wouldn't use the touch-up paint for re-painting the wheels.

I think if you go to any paint shop dealing with Dupont, they have a book with the codes (even for a car as rare as a Karma) and it's a pretty simple matter for them to mix it. The one I went to even put it in a bottle that attaches to a spray can I used to touch up the bottom of the fascia (much more useful than a stick).

The Orlando dealership was selling paint sticks on eBay (now only see this one for Mirage color: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fisker-Karma...713c27&vxp=mtr), but I think you'd be better off at a paint store.

I bought a touch-up pen set from @Lormax last year. It came with an Eclipse (Black) pen and a Clear top coat pen. Seems to work fine for small nicks and scratches.

The body shop DO Not have a book with codes they need to belong to Du Ponts web site in order to get the correct blend of paints .The Fisker touch up pens are garbage IMO.

Yeah - not a book but a website. I was just shocked that this old character got the code from me, went in the office and came out saying "do you know that code is for a Fisker Karma?" He's a good guy, always working hard to educate his customers, and helped me many times. If any Miami-area owners need paint, I'll include the contact info for future reference.

Thanks Nin ja. I contacted Automotivetouchup today and ordered a bunch of stuff including a 12 oz spray can of Earth paint, plus clear coat, primer, sandpaper, etc. The total cost was about $65.00. I have some deep scraps on both sides of the front bumper so I feel this is worth a try.

I ordered some wheels for my Karma, and I want to have parts of the wheels painted to match. ....Thanks all in advance.
Please email or call Melissa. They have some touchup paint in stock. Maybe you are lucky.
