    Default Touch up paint

    Any recommendations for repairs to stone chips on a "rouge lucifer" c5. I thought maybe nail varnish/lacquer.

    What about the dealer supplied bottles?

    Last time I checked (January) a dealer-supplied bottle (small bottle of colour, plus small bottle of clear) was around $40 and had to come from France.

    A more "common" colour like Rouge Lucifer (EKQ) may be in stock, hopefully.
    Regards,

    I have had modest success with the SuperCheap Auto touch up cans.

    The can cap colour is close, but for a better chance, see if you can find another more common car that is the same colour.

    Rouge Lucifer is probably a harder colour to find a car that matches.
    My "green" was (from memory) very close to a Toyota colour.
    Once upon a time:


    Many R4s (incl. fourgonnette), R5LS, R16TS.


    GS 1015, 1220, sedans and wagons.
    CX 2200, 2400.
    ID 1966, 1969, DS21H, DSpecial, DS23 Pallas.
    C5 2002, 2004 petrol and diesel.
    D Special 1974
    Xantia Activa 1998 (look out Gulargambone)
    GS 5 speed sedan (what a tale)
    1986 2CV6
    CX25GTi 1985 auto
    CX2500 IE Pallas 1985 auto
    DS23EFI 1975 Pallas

    And now:

    C5 2.2 HDI 2005 wagon
    DS23 1973 Pallas

    Try Robayne Paint at South Burnie. One 100ml in a pressurised can is $36. Let me know if you want me to organise

    Thanks for the offer. I was thinking more of a tiny brush to dab onto the chip. Allan

    I they are just chips, a match stick to dab some paint into the chip area works very well. Avoid paint elsewhere. Otherwise the repair becomes more noticeable.

    Several successive dabs, allowing drying in between will build the chip area.

    I've never had any success with spray packs of any kind.

    Being metallic, you get a bottle of colour and another of clear in the factory kits. Search under 'Paint pen' in the Citroen Service parts listing for the part numbers of pen kits. That returned 186 items when I did that yesterday chasing the code name for something. Then search for the colour code for your car in the webpage to find the one you want. Sometimes, you'll find them via eBay if you prefer not to go the dealer route. Remember, the French names are often paraphrased into English and there are sometimes solid and metallic versions of the same colour name.

    Clean the chipped area and put a little colour in the base of it only, as little as possible, and then touch in the clear to seal it. Too much paint and it looks very ugly and draws attention to it. If you want to level the surface around the chip, wipe it with a razor blade while it is wet or sand it flat later via a piece of shim/paper with a hole in it. Spray is mostly a waste of time for small stonechips unless you mask around the chip and build up thin layers.

    You can also try nail polish. The selection is quite vast. You might get lucky and only a few dollars.

    And if the colour doesn't match the car it might suit your nails and skin tone...

    Does anyone know how to get touch up paint for the 19" C5 rims? Think I would prefer pressure can.

    Default Factory touchup pens

    Hi,

    I can get you the factory touch up pens for $18.88 plus local postage. It will be two pens, the metallic, and a clear.

    I can include it in my next order to France.

    I can get just any parts about 1/2 price that the dealers sell at.

    let me know?

    best regards,

    Greg
