Alpine White Touch Up Paint
Hi Guys

so last week I had this guy nick me in bumper to bumper traffic on the M1 (Road works RedNo)
anyway as per pic its really minor and I don't want to claim from insurance.
I used polish to get almost all of the marks off, however im left with a small spot about 1cm in diameter that has its paint stripped.
obviously don't want to respray the entire bumper so looking for a place that can touch this up for me a supply me with the paint so I may do it myself.[Image: 20170614_153708_resized_2612403971.jpg]

RE: Alpine White Touch Up Paint
Judging by the pic, to try touch it up with a touch up bottle you are going o struggle. I would get guys like Paint Bull to come out and just sand/prepare the affected area and spray that area blending it in. They used to be cost effective and they come out to were ever you are and did a decent enough job. It will look a whole lot better than trying to touch it up with a tiny "nail' brush. Just my 2c worth.

Definitely agree - the touch up paint is more for stone chips

Hi, no I dont anymore, apologies. Think good old Google should be able to provide :-)
Did a quick look and found this number for Germiston (082) 808-4123. Give it a try, perhaps state where you are based and they may redirect you to an appropriate number.
