Sorry, I think MB uses the term "Touch-Up Pencil" but it is actually "Nail Polish" type Vials, with the same brushes as a nail polish bottle. Thus, the brush is waaaaaay too large for spot paint chip repair.G-AMG all I have is the touch up kit (vial of color and vial of clear coat). I have never used it but I didn't realize it is a pen. Do we have the same thing or is yours different? I like the idea of the micro brushes since the primary complaint I've heard about the factory kit is the applicator makes it blob on.
I think any color will fade some given enough time and sun exposure. My Brilliant Silver looks great to me now but once I apply fresh paint I expect to see some difference in hue.I just bought the "nail polish" paint from the dealer for $25. The paint shows slight difference put on 14 years old paint. Desert Silver should not fade, should it?
Thanks for clarifying G-AMG, that's the same kit I have. I'm wondering if an arts and craft store might have Micro Brushes too, I think I'll take a look in the couple we have here.Sorry, I think MB uses the term "Touch-Up Pencil" but it is actually "Nail Polish" type Vials, with the same brushes as a nail polish bottle.

So, since you have 9744 color paint, you could mix a few drops of each of the Base and the Clear together, and then use the Micro Brushes to carefully build up the Chip Defects.
Or, if you want to be anal, you can do one or two coats of Base, and then Build up with the Clear vial.
If needed, you can use a Reducer (aka "Thinner") to thin the mix, and use more numerous coats to more carefully build the defect.
