do you have an automotive paint supplier in the area? they would be able to make you a rattle can if you take them the frame.

or take the frame to halfords, go through the colour charts and find one that matches.

or send me the frame, i will take it to one of 2 local paint suppliers who would be able to custom mix a pretty close colour

i do this with wheels that only need partial refurbs

So on touch up paint jobs is it best to spray and not brush??

i would spray and try to blend it in.

others would say tough in with a brush

i am right though

i've just got back from halfords for a can for my primered 95 explosif,the only problem is that i sold my other 95 last week so have nothing to match to.
so i had a picture on my mobile and got something pretty close - i think.
if it's nothing like then i'm thinking of changing the colour altogether and some new decals from gil

I have a good match in the shed, I used it on my '95 Explosif frame and it looked flawless.
I'll dig it out tomorrow.
:D

i was holding out for another one, but can send it over on Monday.
I'll post the details here so there's a record for future '95 Explosif restorers!
