Does anyone know if touch up paint is available for Trek bikes in the frame colors they offer. I have some scratches in my Trek 7200 I would like to touch up.
Check with your LBS, they should be able to order touchup paint for you, or go to an autoparts store and look at the small bottles of auto touchup paint. Also check out a hobby shop for model paints. With a little bit of care, using some primer to build up the chip, you can fix it so that it looks like it was never there.
I never would have thought of nail polish, but that's an idea too.
The OTHER advantage of nail polish: if it does not look good, you can remove it.
I've given up trying to "match" paint. My rotten "touch up" skills just draw attention to the damage, like a big band-aid over a skin blemish. So, I've gone to clear nail polish. It protects the steel, and none of the original paint gets covered with an "almost" matching color.
