Scotland 2012 Freelander 2 TD4 GS Manual Fuji White
Touch up Paint


My FL2 is Fuji White and I'm struggling to find touch up paint for it, apart from the hugely expensive Chipex etc.
Halfords have various whites in their range.
Has anyone found eg a Ford white to be a good match, or something else.
Cheers
Iain.

Halfords only seem to have 3 LR colours.
I'll check the eBay options.

If anyone has tried it, is the
Chipex stuff worth the money?

& if you only need a few drops of solvent to thin the paint use some nail varnish remover. I don't use it myself!

Also the paint takes a week to fully harden, for all the solvents to dissipate. So leave it alone once you have applied it to the car. Procrastination, mankind's greatest labour saving device!

Just click and scroll down for Fuji White LRC867.
I've used this eBayer for many years, from full spray kits to just these touch up bottles. Colour match is spot on - well at least for me so far.
£5 delivered for a 30ml bottle , quick drying, no laquer required. Bargain I'd say. I've still got a bottle I bought 2 years ago, always handy for leaving in the Freelander and touching up chips as they occur..

Send a message, I'm sure Fiona will be able to help. She helped me in the past with Oslo Blue many, many years ago.
