    Got a nasty chip on my Yeti ASR 5a frame…I’ve managed to find an website that does custom touch up pots in both RAL and Pantone colours to match the original….thing is they do either cellulose, acrylic or enamel versions

    Any ideas as to which would be closest to the original paint?

    Thank you oh hive mind….

    Stunning website design containing absolutely no information whatsoever. Useful to book mark.

    +1 for clear nail varnish. And it works on different bikes 🙂

    Last time I asked a similar question the typically STW response was ‘chicks dig scars’ and put a bit of clear lacquer over it…

    If you’re trying to colour match, try dabbing a little of your paint sample in the dropouts or something for a hidden test, maybe?

    Cheers guys , but I am less concerned about the colour match as I have the colour sorted, it’s more about which of the paint types they do will be suitable for touching up my bike….choices are either cellulose, acrylic or enamel versions

    I’m probably wrong but I would chose enamel.
    If is falls off at least yo’ll have enough paint to touch up again.

    Thanks iolo, I am thinking that any of them would probably be ok. It’s not like I have a choice of eggshell, emulsion or suchlike
