    patching chipped paint to prevent rust

    Hey,

    I have an older bianchi that now has chipped paint in a few places and a few rust spots as well. I want to touch up the paint to protect the frame ... any advice?

    I'm assuming that manually touching up the paint is the best option, but if you have other suggestions let me know. Thanks ~

    nail polish I have heard works. I have a older Nishiki that the original owner used some type of touch up paint on it. That did not work, it rusted arround the edges. I would suggest sanding the nick area then getting some rustoleom in the desired color then apply. Also remember Aluminium (sp?) carbon (duh), an TI doesn't rust
    The Ferrari ('05 Bianchi Forza) had a flat (Stupid Glass) the Japanese wagon ('77 Nishiki with Arkel Utility Basket) was in the body shop (On my bench being repainted...repent ye rust)
    so I took the SUV ( Cannondale V2000 Active 100SL)
