Default Team Lavender Touch Up Suggestions?

Sadly, the team lav has already suffered a ding. I know I wont get it perfect, but has anyone used anything for touch up worth suggesting?

No, the ding isn't in the pic, I just try not to post anything without pics.

Aaack! Chipped already? What happened Mike?

Just got a shipment of touch up bottles in with applicator and mixing ball, call me with your current addy and I'll send out some paint to you.

cheers,

rody

Default Team Paint

Just wondering if anyone has been able to accurately reproduce this paint - metal flake and all.

Rody has posted a by-eye formula in his blog

http://groovycycleworks.blogspot.com...00th-post.html

He has also 'splained a few times before that the whole Milka myth is just that, a myth and the team violet 'formula' was never really written down, but rather was always kind of done by eye. He got that directly from the horses mouth by the way

The guy who mixed the first and most subsequent batches of Team Violet for a few years. I can't remember for sure, but think it was Mike from ANT. Rody has posted the story before.
