  1. Touch Up Paint: Canada vs USA

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    went to the dealership to pick up a touch up pen. the applicator tip is like one you might find on a Sharpie Pen, which i think is great vs. the marker/highlighter style that was offered for my Mazca and Toyota, which was often a bit clumsy to apply (for me, anyway). should be great for detail...
  2. "Soft" paint on the bumpers

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 2)
    I've only had to fold down the rear seats and carry something long twice. Second time I had a 250 pound safe to slide up and into the cargo bay.

  6. Painting a large chip -- suggestions?

    Soul Problems (Gen 2)
    The Kia has a paint chip in the rear right corner -- most likely caused by somebody brushing against it though I suppose a rock could have bounced up. It is almost two quarters in length, too long for a paint touch up brush I believe. What would you recommend for painting such an area...
