Info wanted: Touch up paint for Vixen Porta.
      #3799624 - 05/11/10 04:47 PM

My Vixen Porta has a couple of small dings and a chip in the paint. Does anyone know of a source for touch-up paint or any close match colors avaliable anywhere? Thanks.

Rustoleum white satin spray.
Take the can shake as directed then spray into the cap, blow into the collected spray to get rid of some of the carrier and thicken it up a bit and then take a 3-4" long splinter of wood then dip into that collected spray and touch the splinter into the imperfection.
Repeat till the imperfection is filled.
Using a small paint brush holds too much paint where the splinter picks up a very small amount and wicks into the area to be touched up.
I use the Rustoleum on all the brackets I make for both the Porta and Voyager and those that buy these tell me the finish matches the mounts almost perfectly.
