Congrats on getting your EC. What did you own before deciding to get it? Also, what other vehicles were you considering?

Hi! I have a 1997 Mitsu Galant in the Philippines and I have a Basic Model of Impreza here in Qatar before I purchased my EC.

I also had a small chip, I discovered that there was no touch up paint due to the layered paint job.

I bought a bottle of nail polish that nearly matched the colour, mixed it with another similar nail polish colour until I got a match.

You wouldn't know it was there.

Mine is the Diamond Red.

Hey Neil,

Let me know the brand of nail polish and the colour codes if you have them. Also the ratio you added (how much of which to what) if you can remember it. I think I'll need this in future as well...

Main colour = Sinful Colors Sugar Sugar 839

Mixer = Sinful Colors Devious 1611

I think I bought them from Target, if not it would be KMart.

You just need to add Devious to Sugar Sugar in very small amounts until the right colour is achieved.

The Sugar Sugar 839 has a hint of glitter like the Diamond Red pearl.

Seems the Sinful brand is at a few stores https://www.google.com.au/search?cli...UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

Don't forget to knock off the wife's nail polish remover and also buy a clear nail polish to use as a clear coat touch-up.

Washed the EC yesterday and found another small chip.

Touched it up with the nail polish.

Attached is a photo where I did the touch-up, yes, there was a chip there, however, the color match is perfect.
