Having recently had my brakes checked by my local Alfa dealer I have noticed that they have chipped:rant: the paint on the corners of the callipers:cry:.
Does anyone know what colour red they are as I want to touch them up before the paint peels off across the callipers.

They are powder coated rather than painted, any old red will do.
How will "any old red do" when it doesnt match the origional colour ? :rolleyes:

You'll never notice is what I mean, it gets lots of different light and shade behind the wheel.

Buy a bright red touch up from Halfords.

I have used the old Colorado Red touch-up stick that I used to use on my Fiesta ST (from Halfords). It blends in quite well, but as CJ Romeo said; You're not really going to notice if the colour is a little off.

Yes, I bought the paint as listed above from the ebay link,and it is an almost if not perfect match,well pleased:thumbs:
Dam! I never saw this comment! And instead i went to halfords and got the colarado ford red, its no where near a match but i suppose it did the job and will stop the chips rusting. It looks like the caliper has a rash :(
