I have a Trek Project 1 bike painted in the color Andromeda...I fell and now have a small scratch...any thoughts on how best to repair it? Thanks!

The easiest way I can think of (maybe not the best) is to go to a hobbie store and buy a vial of model paint. A good store will have many colors and one should be a close match. For a small scratch just use a toothpick to paint with.

If it took the color completely off, I would do what bikesonthebrain said to do. May have to buy more than one color, and do your own 'custom color matching'.
If your scratch is just on the surface, an auto wax with slight abrasives (like Turtle Wax) will work well to remove the scratch.
