Hi everyone im new to this site but wondered if you can help me?
I have a 94 Marin Bear Valley SE which im intending to do up at some point in the future after it has finished serving as a child hauler. When i get round to this i want to give it a full respray but at the moment i just want to touch it up as it has quite a few scratches, scuffs and surface rust etc that i dont want to get any worse but i still want it to look good.I have a couple of questions!

1) does anybody know a good paint that colour matches or what colours to mix to get the right colour? what sort/brands of paint is best?
2) Is there any resource online witch show tecniques to use eg blending in the touch up for scuffs etc

These may be silly questions but i suppose its true what they say "its easy when you know how!!"

Thanks in advance for any help
