Thumbs down Paintscratch.com touchup PENS... no good

Spent $29 for the basecoat and clearcoat pen in factory
matched color from www.paintscratch.com

The paint matching was perfect, but the applicator pen is a god dang piece of crap. DO NOT GET THE PEN! just pay extra and
get the can and use some empty yogurt cup or something and a toothpick to apply. I endedup using a yogurt cup anyway....but
the problem is that the pen's felt tip dries and after one use
it is dried completely to a point it won't release the
paint inside the pen anymore!

The reason why I bought this was because the dealer was out
of touchup paint for my color (non-subaru) and the distributor
mentioned that the backlog dates 2 months! if it wasn't
for that, i would've just bought the dealer touchup.

since i used a toothpick as i always do to apply touchup,
it looks fine as any touchup job ive done in the past but that
pen applicator is a no go...one use and it's useless.

OEM Subaru paint is better

Don't use the paintbrush on the oem subaru paint. I pour a little droplet of paint into a plastic cap (water bottle) and apply it with a toothpick and let it drain into chip. Makes it sorta hard though since subaru paint is so thin though.

you need to clean the ends of the pen in automotive lacquer thinner after each use, this way the paint is removed and cleaned off the end and you can use it more than once.
