Has anyone figured out what color nail polish best matches Sachs red? I'd like to paint a small scuff on the bike, and then perhaps do my toes.

Thanks

Do your toes first. Then ride your Sachs. Other's comments will tell you if the colors are matched.

Thank you! Joe Bell said that because the paint is sprayed on in the shop, a dab of matching paint doesn't work as well as nail polish. But I presume you've tried this and it works?

Have you tried Testors model paint sold at hobby shops? It comes in a very wide range of colors, and you can buy a jar for perhaps $2 or so. I bought a set of Testors paints at Target or Wal-Mart for less than $10 and I can usually match just about any paint chip, although sometimes I have to mix colors. I'm a painter, however, so I've got pretty good eyes for colors.

I got the Krylon tip directly from world headquarters in chester.

Excellent. And it should be more durable on my toes.
