As the title really ... how easy is it, or is it possible at all, to get the colour of paint matched to what's already on the frame?
It's a 1989 Rockhopper in light grey, few scratches and rusty bits and the paint is beginning to flake off in a few places, rather than a total respray and decal job - tempted but it's used as my 'to the shops, beach, friends, gym, offie, off-road when I feel like something different' bike and I think it'll only make it more attractive to the wrong sort - I'd like to just clean and touch up the bad bits and I don't want to end up with different coloured splodges on it ...
So, what can be done, any suggestions or ideas?
Only want a small amount, maybe I'm answering my own question but it's just occured to me that I could buy some black and white paint and try to come up with the colour myself?
Then one day you find, 10 years have got behind you ....
