......Im still looking at breaking down the candy baucus olive formula color. I will say "touch up" on a Candy paint is left to the professionals....
1st, the paint is almost impossible to locate, 2nd.. matching the pigment and "oxidation/fade" is even more difficult....
post some pics....lets see what your looking at...

I don't trust VMR PAINTS... emailed them multiple times ... no response. I'm not about to send someone money without getting a return email..
Workdog.. you will have a better chance of finding a nail polish to match that color... give it a shot, you will be surprised..

It sounds reasonable to me, Ill neutralize the rust first and lay down a silver base then have my wife go shopping for the nail polish :D
Thanks for the idea.
