I'm searching for Glacier Silver A83 touch up paints online but with no luck,

I got couple of stone chips and I want to get rid of them

Thanks,

I bought a metallic paint for glacier silver 1 series from Dr. Colorchip and matched perfectly.

I've used BMW's OEM touch up paint in the past and it's excellent. Matches perfectly.

I have tried Mitsubishi,Honda, and Acura touch up pens and they have been terrible. The color marched but application was bad. I haven't tried one from BMW.

Most of the applicators I've seen are awful. I tend to use a toothpick and try to drop the smallest possible dot of paint into the chip, building up if needed.

Best tip I can give with these paints is to work quickly - they're usually so thick and dry out quickly. Get some paint in the chip and let it settle.
