touch up paint

well they say your car is only new for a day and that's true, my car has suffered it's first stone chip from a lorry ,nothing serious a tiny chip really, but i know it's there.
i was wondering can you get the touch up sticks from the fiat dealers as i looked around halfords ext and they don't have my colour Caribbean orange

took our fiat dealer 3 weeks to get us a caribbean orange touch up stick. Wouldnt trust halfords to make the same shade.

Re: touch up paint

thanks all, will visit dealers tomorrow, luckily i bought primmer touch up from halfords which should keep the chip safe,though the tiny grey spot does stick out in the sea of orange, again probably cause i know it's there

Re: touch up paint

If you love your car, don't put touch up paint or any kind of Halfords paint anywhere near it.

Re: touch up paint

I just noticed a small scratch on the side of the front bumper of my GP; its about the size of a grain of rice and the paint has definitely came off. Silly question - the bumper is plastic, right? If so it won't rust, uh?

Have you got yours yet? If so how long did it take?

That's the standard price, right?
