White touch up paint for late model roof

I have a few small scratches on my roof and would like to touch them up. Does anyone know what type of paint would be good to use to touch up the white roof on a 2017 FC?

Thankss

If you are concerned about corrosion rather than appearance. Get some automotive clear coat, clean the area around scratches apply the clear coat.

Touched up a few scratches where I removed a vent and sealer. Replaced vent/sealer and touched up white roof paint with Automotive Touch Up Paint available in in the small bottles at Auto Zone. The touch up bottles have the color of the paint in one side of bottle and clear coat on the other side. I used Chrysler white, matched perfectly then coated it with the clear coat that came in the same bottle.

Thanks bluto and Dellrossa. Delrossa, what do you do with that formula? Take it to a paint shop and ask them to make it? Would a Sherwin Williams have that?

Thanks!
Rich

If it’s small scratches u can paint it with a small brush. Larger areas either a roller, an airless sprayer, air sprayer, or get one of the kits to use it in an aerosol.
Good luck.
