How to prep for small paint touchup

I have several small rock chips that I plan to repair with Newmar's touch up paint. How do I prep the small chip. It is too small to sand. One website mention using a solvent based wax and grease remover. Not sure where I can find such a product. Any suggestions?

91% alcohol works, consider using a paper matchbook match (not the lighting side) or something equivalent instead of a brush, dab small amounts of paint in to void letting it dry between dabs. Build the chipped area up to level with the surrounding area.

I've used PrepAll. I have a quart but can't find it online.

Prep-Sol is what body shops use. great stuff. buy a gallon and it will last a long time. Not expensive.

Ideally you would get some 600 wet sand paper and sand the spots with your finger tip in a circle motion to get a little bit of grip for the incoming paint. pre sand, prepsol, post sand, blow off and prepsol again. Wait a few minutes to dry and then apply your spot paint.

Thanks for the suggestions.

No way to sand the area since most are about half the size of a pencil eraser.

Dav L jhutch here I ran into the same problem. I've got a 2002 newmar mountain aire 3778 and the paint codes I had inside cabinet and in owners log listed sherwin Williams paint codes. I went to local sw and got no where, then called sherwin Williams automotive division. Got no where unless I wanted to bring it to them for estimate. I found a seller on Amazon that custom mixed with the original sw code wa165d and got exactly what I wanted. Do a googling on Amazon for custom paint mixing and it should come up if not reach out.

Very timely thread for me as I just ordered some touch-up paint from Newmar for our coach earlier this week. I have the paint code sticker in a kitchen cabinet but they just looked up our coach build number in their records.

They charged $25 for a set of all four colors on our 2004 MADP. It hasn't been delivered yet, but they said there is a (approximately) one ounce container of each color.
