Touch up paint???

I'm after a really nice accurate touch up paint pen. I like the needle type ones from Halfords because you can put a tiny amount on if you need to, but nothing for Alfa's though.. I've got the Rubino Red for the 159 witch I'd like to keep it looking the best it can!

Anyone know of some good ones? What's genuine Alfa touch up pens like?

Thanks for looking.

There's a Chipex deal here: (Stone Chip Repairs)

with 25% off. It's actually better than using a touchup pen as it is quick dry and you can put it on with a cocktail stick , cloth or brush.

Seconded for the Chipex kit. I've just done all the chips on the back wheel arches on mine and it looks ace. I've yet to use a touch up pen that works having wasted monry on them in the past for various cars.

I can't recommend the Chipex kit enough, I wish i'd done some before and after pics really

I haven't used a touch up pen before, but have recently used ChipEx. I think I still need a bit of practice on the technique, but very impressed with the system
and colour match.
