After a year of having the 8c Red paint job, all the motorway miles haven't really damaged the paint that much at all! It seems this is a much harder compound than the original Alfa Red.... Having said that, despite my mudflaps and the plastic insets on the rear arches, i managed to get a horrible stone chip. Spoke to the guy that did the respray and asked what options i had in terms of touch up paint. He advised that due to the multiple layers and pigments that make up the lovely colour it will be quite difficult......
Anyway he comes back to me and says he has got a perfect colour match touch up which he mixed up himself. To my horror i open the pot and its bright purple. He says trust me when it dries it will be spot on. So i carefully touch up the stone chip and let it dry. To my amazement, the colour is spot on! You cannot even see the chip anymore! I think he could probably sell this for a fair amount of money especially to mito's/giuliettas with the competizione option.....
