Worth it to touch up paint job?
#1
I have a Linus Roadster and it got scratched moving cross country. I love this bike and want to touch up the paint job. Has anyone had experience painting over scratches on bikes? Any ideas where I can order touch up paint? Thanks!

Autozone or similar autoparts stores have touch up paint for cars which will work well on bikes.

That's a question only you can answer. If you chose to do it get duplicolor touch up sticks at automotive store (as close a match as you can get and wipe the brush on the jar lip so it does not drip and than touch up with small tap tap dots.

I use a 00 paint brush from art store , a magnifying visor. and a good light.

btw I found a site where you can order bike paint for certain major brands and I think even paint for custom jobs. Seemed to have some good deals. The site is http://www.mytouchuppaint.com
