Default Scratched Yo

Bugger me sideways.

This morning I was ina rush and stepped into my garage promptly knocking over my new build bike (wheels on but no tyres hence instability..) which quite amazingly threw itself onto my Poor aqua Yo eddy. Picking the Pace up from its attack revealed that the evil PAce stem had run itself down about an inch of seattube near where the front mech is. Thanks Pace.

Its left a nice portion of paint missing and because its on the bloody paint fade I cant simply touch it up. Great. Why is Fat paint so thin? Thought it should survive a little clash....

Pished off..

Default gouge...

Cheers mate - I did this too and got some paint mixed to match. Will have a go tonight but in the meantime I stuck a bloody ringle sticke rover it as an experiemnt but looks x10 worse now. Will attempt a paint mix tonight! Its worse for me as its right on the fade transition from blue to green....colour hard to match even with mixing...

The fade transition is indeed a complicating factor.

I think I would first prepare a large variety of combinations and then apply them very gradually.
