I've stupidly neglected my bike for the last year due to injury and some time spent outside the country. Having come back to it I've found it's in pretty poor nick. I'm going to spend some time over the next week restoring her back to her former beauty, trouble is I've no idea how best to match the colours when I come to touching up some of the spots she's managed to accumulate...
I really don't want it to look like a shoddy attempt with mismatched colour patches. Do you reckon it's possible match the colours by eye? I've also thought about trying to message Basso to see if they've got some sort of colour code that they could give me so that I know I'm getting the right colour.
have uploaded original image, but if you can't view it for any reason it's a basso coral, silver/violet edition.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
Touch-ups rarely look good, especially if there's too many. If you don't want the expense of a new paint job give the frame a good wax and enjoy the patina.
Can you post a pic of it in its current state. Patching it up may make it look worse. There may be other options
enjoy the patina.

Give it an excellent clean and polish, and it will end up looking amazing.
