I got a deep 2 inch scrape on my trunk lid, Its down to the grey metal underneath the white paint frown

I had touch up paint from the dealer, But everytime I used that, It looked bad and looked like blobs. Is there a kit at auto zone or something?

I answered your post on CGP. Dealer touch up paint is not some miracle solution that will make your scratch disappear. It takes a lot of work and attention to detail to use touch up paint correctly to fill in a scratch. It is NOT something you simply apply to the scratch and suddenly it's gone. Repairing scratches takes many steps as well as other products to be done correctly.

Very true, back when I had my old bumper I thought that dealership paint touch up would solve a little scratch i had on my front bumper, unfortunately it was very noticeable still and now realize it does require a lot of attention, etc.
