Hello All,

I have a polar white Ioniq. Does anyone know what the colour name/code is for the blue stripes on the exterior front and rear, as it would be useful to buy some touch up paint for any chips. Thanks.

don't seem to be many touch-up kits you can get for the Ioniq paints let alone the copper or blue trims
Touch- up paint kits are a play toy for amateur painters but wont do any good. Scratches remain visible if not getting worse. In case of metallic paint its 100% impossible to repair this yourself with touch-up pencils. When paint on metal parts is scratched most times also the primer layer had been cut, which need to be filled. Else the risk of corrosion comes up which brings you further from home. Also the top finish layer needs to be re- installed. Forget that this all can be accomplished by a simple stroke of a brush. Do it good or leave it and spare yourself the money. Thats the reason why Honda , Hyundai and other Koreans dont provide touchup paint with their cars anymore.Wise decision.

I agree with Rene on this, I had a silver Skoda, and had several paint chips and scratches, which needed repairing before I handed it back, took it to a specialist paint shop, the only way they could make the repair invisible was to spray and blend all the affected panels

Thanks Rene, so are you suggesting taking the car for a professional respray for each stone chip? Or that they should just be left untreated, until there are sufficient chips to justify such work?

Your dealer would have the exact color or could order it. Many parts stores can order the paint if they have your VIN number.

I agree with some of the other comments that it's not perfect. Perfect is not why you do 'touch-up' paint.

Your color code is on the door jamb. The white one should be PYW or WAW, if I’m not mistaken.

got to disagree on this, touch up is better than white undercoat spot showing, Halfords to a kit which includes a filler paint, actual mettalic paint, and a laquer coat, plus a funny little block for rubbing down with! did a repair on my VW Tourag door post and you had to look really close to spot the repair, where before it looked like a spot of white bird poo, and instantly caught your eye!

I agree with tonyleckenby. I recently ordered a three part touch up paint kit [from eBay]. After applying the base coat, the top coat and finally the top coat, the repair was almost invisible. I could see the 'Spot', only because I know it is there and my eye is automatically drawn to it. Everybody I ask to see if they could spot the repair, cannot see it. Finally, for bigger areas, you can even get aerosol spray cans made up [also eBay]. Using touch up paint does take time and effort to get the best out of it. Top Tip: Try using the point of a cocktail stick to dab in the stone chip. Also, try and not put too much paint on each time. Two or three layers works better than just one heavy layer.

Hi Sebastian58
I’m from New Zealand but I can tell you I got a small container (Size of a nail polish) from my local Hyundai dealer for $30.
Perhaps call your dealer and see if they can help.

in local dealers today to order touch up pen, they dont order from Hyundai u.k. but make up on the spot! £10 for small pot with brush in the lid. unfortunately I didn't take a pic before touching up, but its bottom edge of bonnet and was down to the white undercoat, now you do have to look for it.

I recently used touch up paint. It did not come out well, mostly because I probably did it wrong, partly because the color wasn't an exact match even though it was ordered by the color code. I'm not terribly concerned with how it came out because it's such a small spot. Without looking for it, it's not a glaring defect. I did it mostly to prevent rust since the chip went down to the metal. It had already started to rust there. I scraped all the rust out with a needle and put a coat of rust-oleum on it first to keep it from getting worse.

Because of the location and size, touch up paint was worth it for me but if I had a larger or more conspicuous scratch, I'd get it fixed professionally.

I touched up a stone chip on my Ioniq using the touchup pen provided.
The Iron Grey colour of my car is almost metallic (in direct sunlight you can see it).
The touchup pen they gave me looks almost blackish, instead of iron grey.

Thinking I should get a exact match at a pro-paint shop??

Anybody have this problem, or am i just really bad at touchups??? lol

Both Honda and Hyundai still provide touch-up paint for their cars. One can order it or buy directly at dealer shops.
Of course it is not for painting over scratches, it's just to fill small holes.

I have to go to the Hyundai dealership in Canada for touch up for the Ioniq Electric in Phantom Black (if they have it). Not sure if the touch up paint has metallic in it... Have a small spic of defect from a possible rock chip on one of my doors. I can see it looking white when the sun hits it. I figure I better fill it in before it gets worse. Whether or not I can blend it in is another problem...
