Paint Scratch

I am sure I am not the first one this is happened to, but it makes me sick to my stomach.

I just came back from a road trip and I noticed the scratch in the attached pictures, that happened I'm one of my RV doors. I suspect a lawn-chair. Might have done it when leaned up against it.

Any suggestions for a fix?Click image for larger version

DJ,
What year is your coach and didn't you get any touch up paint when you bought it? If so, you could try using that.

The paint codes are located inside the entry door. However, when I had some paint work done, the coded paint didn't match the coach.

Ouch that's a nasty one. Like others have said, you can either find the touch up paint and just touch it up or bring it to a body shop for a professional job. I touched up a much smaller scrape, others don't notice it but I know it's there.

Our touchup paint was in the box with all the manuals.

A good automotive paint supply store in town can take ur paint codes and mix you some to match ... Some can even put it in an spray can for you...

I did that and carry it with me....

My wife's Infinity had a few parking lot nicks and the Service Rep showed me how to get the best results with the touch up paint. He said the trick is to lay the paint in the scratch using absolutely as little paint as possible. Let it set up then go over it with the clear coat. He said with the base coat, get the brush as dry as you can get it and just ease the color right into the scratch. Wish I'd video'd him doing it.

Of course I'd like to keep my coach like new but I have come to the realization that things happen. I recently - just this trip because I got a ding - that each scratch or ding reminds me of where I was with the family.
