I'm looking for a small pot of touch-up paint in Tartan Red - has anyone found a supplier?

I buy mine from Bull Motif. They do every colour ever produced in touch up, paint on and aerosol.

I buy my paint bits from paint shop supplys here in notts. Im sure if you google paint suppliers in your area you will find something, if you plan to spray you can buy half sometimes quarter litre pots but that will make double when thinned.

I was ideally thinking of those little pots with their own brush for stonechips - I've got a few tiny marks from taking the engine out that I want to sort before I install the new one.

Sorry John i deleted my post as i forgot to add the link, however depending on what Tartan red you are using, Mazda Classic Red is a very close match and i had been recommended this off the forum (it may have been spraypainterpeter)

 

Now Project Erm is Tartan Red 2 and i have to admit i have not really checked to see how close a match it is.

I'd use a fine artist's brush rather than the brushes supplied with the little containers of touch up paint as they tend to be a bit too thick.

I bought a white 106 many years ago and someone touched it up with one it looked like someone had tip-exed all over the car... i hate them things. Id rarther brush on proper car paint or even spray coulor match into the lid and paint that on. You could always mask off a tiny area and then buff/ wet and dry it too
