TREK White touch up paint

Hi all,

Know Trek does not provide any touch-up paint but was wondering if anyone has found a good match for their standard white color?

Been looking around at different pens/paints but get lost in all the variations of white. Seems like a pearl white would make sense but not sure.

Thanks for the help!

I gave up and mixed my own from enamel model paint and glitter. I had one small orange chip to fix, so I mixed red and yellow and some silver glitter.

You might have luck finding a match with nail polish. Now, the store might not like you taking your bike into their store, but maybe you could leave your license, of enough $$ to more than cover the cost of a bottle, so you could take it out of the store and compare it to the bike.

Another vote for nail polish. Walgreens was OK with me taking the bike in. Might be different now, of course.

nail polish, cheap, easy. I don't care about the look so much as protection so close is good enough for me.
