nasty scratch - Paint Touch up

I wanted to share and give kudos to AutomotiveTouchUp.com, their stuff match perfectly my car code and it is very affordable.

I found a nasty scratch on the door and it was driving me crazy, since I really didn't see it when I got the car and I know I haven't hit anything.

Anyways, I got the Pre-Solvent, the Touchup Basecoat and the Rubbing compound. Here is how it look so far.

100% recommended for any Paint touch up or Scratch fix up

Edit: wanted to add this cost me less than $20, You are not suppose to wax for a month, so I'm sure it will b flawless once I can put some wax on it

I have a worn spot showing on the inside passenger door handle from some lady, ahem, continually opening her door with a ring on her right hand. It has worn the paint completely off in a spot about 3/4" long and about 1/16" wide.

Does anyone know the paint color of the interior door handles? It may be Artic Silver? Opinions?

Thanks in advance.

I have this same issue. I assumed the best thing was to get replacement door parts. But if they can be fixed that would be great.

the scratch in the first pic looks like bricks, and the second looks like siding. That's quite a transformation.

you can find it in your manual or service booklet. Porsche stop sticking the codes in the hood. If you can't find it, their website can provided it for you.
here's their samples:

I looked through the manual - nothing showing color codes for my car.
There is a sticker on the inside of the hood that has codes, but which one is for the console?

Would you mind sharing how you fixed the chips? Did you fill the chips first? Or did you just paint over them?

And do you have the standard black or metallic black. I have the standard black and ordered from Dr Colorchip and it was not a good match.
