Paint touch-up kits?

Has anyone used a paint touch up kit like this one on eBay?

My tank has a few stone chips on it and I am looking for something to tidy it up.

Nice nice. I was thinking of covering the entire bike in stickers :P would look pretty cool.

Their spray stuff might be good but the pen I used didn't match very well on my '02. No rust though.

If metal is showing, you'll need the base coat and color coat to get a good match.

With patience (and a little skill) you can do a good job. How nicely it matches will depend on how faded you original paint is. Regardless, the chips will be less noticeable. If you want it perfect, you'll have to have it repainted.
