[V8] faulen Leute - Touchup Paint

I feel your pain; 2 summers ago, my V8 was keyed on the street in front
of my house (actually it may have been a kid's bike).  Insurance company
gave me $1100 to have 2 doors and the front fender repainted, but no
sooner than I had gotten my check from them, the auto transmission
decided it was time for a rebuild... :-(

Sooooo, I have a working trans, and a huge scratch down the side of the
car.  I was getting ready to order some touchup paint from
www.paintscratch.com.  They have a ton of different products and all of
the paint colors.  If you get yours before I order mine, let me know how
it works out. :-)

For those of you who know German, it's a bad thing. 
It's really bad in Germany.  Someone backed into my 93
over the weekend - starting at the front of the front
wheel well, backed all the way to the front - must
have been moving at a decent clip.  Luckily, they
drove off, leaving a crease in the fender, scratched
bumper cover and fender, and a broken corner light.  I
managed to epoxy the light back together
(miraculously, the lens didn't crack but just
seperated from its backing) and buffed out most the
the scratches, but the crease and lack of paint remain
in a few areas...

My friend, whose house I was over when this happened,
confirmed that the reddish paint that I was buffing
out came from the neighbor's Camry.  I'm not going to
press charges, because the damage is so insignificant
and it would leave me carless for some time.  However,
I think I'll kill their dog.

Seriously, anyone have any luck getting Ragusa touch
up paint?  If so, source?
