Touch-up Paint

Anyone know where I can get/order some Nuvolo Blue paint for touching up sme stone chips on my GTV? Would an Alfa dealer be my best bet? I don't usually mind them too much as only I can really spot them (especially when polishing) but now that the weather's nicer I thought it was about time I tried to do something about them.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Touch-up Paint

Your local Alfa dealer will be able to supply touch up, or try car & motorcycle paints...Everything from car touch up paint to air tools available online. They do a complete kit for around 15 which includes clearcoat and wet 'n' dry paper.

Yep! Would recommend these guys. I opted for their paint+laquer kit instead of the touch-up "stick" I could have sourced from the dealer. I read good reviews about their paint quality on detailingworld.com, hence why I bought from the UK. The colour match is perfect

I got Gabbiano blue kit (1x paint and 1 x laquer and small bud applicator) from paints4u.com for about £8. Very quick service too.

Re: Touch-up Paint

out of interest, how easy is it to get good results using these paints4u touch-up applicators?

I have a few chips around the door edge plus more marked gouges on the rear bumper...

Supplied my Alfa Red - perfect match. Dealer didn't seem interested after a few calls.
