Anyone know of a good match for the silver pearlescent colour on the Marin frames of 1994... got some touching up to do!

Any info on a suitable metallic red for the accroutrements on a 94 EG would also be appreciated! :D

ok mate.

The frame in second pic is something i havn't got round to yet, maybe this year...? but i was hoping to get some chrome nail varnish off the 'bay and touch up the chips, i'm ok with that botch :) as for a colour match in rattle can...not sure but it's certainly satin and only radiator paint springs to mind, available at b&q etc..but not field tested.

so, not a conclusive answer from me pal, sorry. i 'll keep checking in for replies as i'm in the same boat, skipper 8)

Like the rattle can radiator paint idea... I'll post some pics up of the bits I need to paint and may experiment. Either way we'll both learn something!
