how to use touch up paint pen?

...ok, got another little ding in my paint, so I get out my handy dandy genuine Honda touch-up paint pen, the one the guy in the service dept said was better than the bottled stuff, and it says on it to "refer to the application guide before using"...ok, only problem is...what application guide? Never received one, wasn't any mention of needing one, so what gives?

...what is the procedure for using one of these things correctly? seems to me you should apply the paint part when its not too cold or damp out, wait for it to dry, then apply the clear coat part and let that dry...does that sound right? ...speak to me gang, people want to know this stuff...

You should have gotten a pamphlet with it, go back to the dealer and get one.

Off the top of my head (i.e. don't blame me =) you first need to clean/sand rust off the affected area.

Shake the pen and on a piece of cardboard or the like, press the colour tip down until it is saturated with paint.

Apply to the area on the car, carefully. Press the nib against the cardboard again if you need more.

Let dry for probably at least an hour or even overnight; if you apply the clearcoat side too early, it just mixes with the coloured paint and you have to start over.

Check it to see if you need more colour; if so, repeat the above. Otherwise, open the clearcoat side, and apply the nib to the piece of cardboard until the tip is saturated with clearcoat.

Apply carefully over the touched up spot until it is all covered.

Let dry.

I bought a pen as well, never used it yet. I also did not get any guide or pamphlet. In the mean time, here is an article on repairing chips and scratches. Not "exactly" what you may be looking for, but it definitely is good info:

I just shook mine, then pressed the tip lightly against the target area. A small amount of paint will keep coming out, so only press slightly and see if it's enough. You can always add more when it dries.
