Anyone have any luck finding a touch-up marker for small rock chips? Thanks.

I was confident they are a wrap, as i've seen numerous pictures of the wrap peeling up from the friction areas of the vents on the hood. I did not think FCA was using satin/matte paint on any body panels. Only area of the car where a satin paint is actually used was on certain wheels.If the car was ordered with 1, 2, or 3 satin panels from the factory they are painted, wrap is an aftermarket thing
To add to the above, I sprayed it heavy in 3 coats to build an adequate "pile." This gives room enough to sand without taking it all off. It's important to note that both the surface and the sandpaper were soaking wet. The amount of pressure you apply has to be ultra light and you have to painstakingly keep adding water to the sandpaper as you go. It probably took me an hour to gently buff that spot down even and spread it out.I covered the entire car with blankets and brown paper. I then shot it with a heavy 3 coats of that satin clearcoat. I let it dry overnight then sanded it in an X pattern until it was smooth with the rest of the car. To blend it, I had to go out with the wet sanding a few inches on either side of the scratch to try and even it out.
So they only wrapped the Demon hood? Seems odd the more special car got a wrap, and the rest didn't.No factory wraps ever on a Hellcat and it's not matte, it's satin.

Demon hood was painted satin black as were all other black hood Hellcats. No vinyl wrap hood that I ever heard of, they were all painted.So they only wrapped the Demon hood? Seems odd the more special car got a wrap, and the rest didn't.
That's the easiest solution. Just sharpie it in. However, sharpie doesn't last very long before it UV fades.Wow - a lot of work!
My scratches consist of two thin lines (1-2 inches) and some pin head size dots.) I was hoping that a fine point Sharpie type solution would simply darken the "white" appearing metal underneath.
