A bit of paint restoration...
« on: Apr 17, 2021, 08:38 AM »
Apologies if I name the parts wrong, but ...
The very dark (gun-metal grey?) piping at the rear half of my bike is suffering a bit, which I'm sure isn't uncommon, just surface rust coming through.  I'm thinking I'll touch it up a bit, either with a pen or can, but does anyone know what colour this is and a good source of paint?
It's darker than the silver of the swingarm.
The bike's green (thankfully that part still looks fine), it's a 2008 650 ABS.

Thanks!
