    My 07 RWB has a a small nick in the red paint, about the size of a nail head. What is recommended for a touch up?

    Thanks.

    I've used em but never been happy with the results, for real small nicks perhaps ok. If you can find a 1/2 ounce bottle of brush on it might be better, this red is really tough to match.

    If the paint comes from Honda directly, wouldn't it be a perfect match? I guess it depends on the application of the paint. I have a few nicks here and there (nothing major) and I just leave it alone in fear of doing a not so perfect job.

    With small nicks you should be ok, to really match well you need to use the correct basecoat. I do believe the companies that sell the correct paint (Colorite etc) also sell the base coat.
