We then decided to touch up the edge of the hood. Squirting some red spray paint into a spray paint can cap sounded like a good idea at the time, but resulted in our hands being coated in paint. Another option would be to spray the cotton swab directly, or just mask the edge of the hood and spray the paint right onto it. If you are concerned about matching your color exactly, look into the small touch-up paint in a nail-polish-like container. The built-in applicator would be very useful in this application.
