I know people paint their sidemarker housing (the black piece) with spray paint. I was wondering if it would work to use Honda touch-up paint specifically for your color?

i wouldn't have a pro paint them.

I would either spray paint according to the houstonprelude site that has a write up on it or I was thinking about using touchup paint just because it is the same color as the car for sure as opposed to guessing on a spray paint can.

I would go with paint that was made to be used on specifically on lenses,the touch up paint might be too thick and the light wont show through enough

I just ordered touch up paint (in a spray can) for my sister's car from www.paintworldinc.com - they seem like they know what they're doing and they have all the color codes. The touch up paint (the brush thing) seems like it might peel easily. It might be better to get a can of your paint - it's $15 from that site - and take out the housing to spray it down with it.

ha, no **** take the housing out.

what would be the difference between spray and brush?
why do you think it would peel more easily if I used the brush?

I wouldn't paint it with a brush because it won't go on a smoothly and even as the spray would. Spraying is the only way to go IMO.

Yeah, I didn't mean to offend you or anything I just didn't want to say "buy the can and spray it down", it just didn't seem right. The brush wouldn't distribute the paint very evenly or as well as a spray can do. That's the only reason why I suggest the spray :) It's totally up to you though, you can use the brush if you'd like.
