I need grey touch-up paint for the headtube on a 2014 Whyte T-129s. How can I find out which colour exactly to buy?
To sum up some comments:
- Contact the dealer or manufacturer for a specific color code or name
- Search various paints based on a similar code
- Get some touch-up paint from an auto parts store and use that
I would add that if you just go with regular touch-up paint, to make sure the gloss level matches the bike (most bikes have a high-gloss clear coat to protect the finish).
Also reference automotive touch-up guides to get an idea of how to best apply any paint (surface prep, etc).
A cheap source of touch up paint, especially for the more garish colors is nail polish. Use a clear coat on tip for maximum strength.
