Touching up MiTo QV paint???
« on: June 29, 2021, 02:31:14 PM »
I love my recently acquired QV but it has stone chips I'd like to repair myself. I heard a rumour MiTos use water based paint. Is it true and if so does that make any difference to stone chip repairs and using touch-up paints?

Have attached a link to a report that provides results on stone chip/paint repair. The products tested should be compatable to water based paints used in modern day automotive finishes.
