no dont go to nhbp if you are using touch up paint on silver. every little scratch and imperfections, such as touch up paint, will show terribly on black. i have it, and i like the looks, but i wouldnt buy another black one but thats me

Yeah honda has the touch up paint in a small bottle that has like a nail polish applicator. If you go to www.handaaccessories.com then you can also get paint pens in OEM colors which work well for filling scratches too. When touching up the paint remember a few things. 1: It will never ever ever look as good as a the original or a repaint, 2: Clean and dry the scratch completely, this includes removing wax using a clay bar, otherwise the paint wont stick very well. and 3: Do very thin coats and let the paint dry inbetween so that it properly cures and you run less risk of overfilling the scratch and having it stand out even more, never just put a glob of paint on there.
