Makerbot 3D printing....DIY Youtubes....the Pioneer spirit and work ethic! Excellent - you have touch-up paint - but what about directions?

I've used this on-line instruction finder many times - it may answer your question. The trick is to input the right information - I preloaded the link with criteria for you - good luck with your fix!

BMW Touch Up Paint

I imagine the white goes on first and the clear goes on after that. You'll probably want to look into how to touch up paint though, as I bet it will involve some light sanding.

Some tips how to use BMW paints.

-Paint can easily get leaked out of the paint pen if the used do not use it properly.
-A larger area of your car must be sprayed
-Always go for paint compatibility test. Paint an inconspicuous part of the vehicle, let dry and see if there is any reaction.
-Use an approved automotive paint respirator and don't forget to wear safety goggles and gloves when handling automotive paint to protect your eyes and skin.

These are some tips in my opinion one can follow.
