Good morning,
I have a JP Australia X-Cite FWS 2007 that needs a little bit of cosmetic work, mainly on the nose as the paint is chipped, few other spots with some little bubbles that could be sanded and painted back, nothing major but would just like to make it pretty again!

What kind of paint would you recommend for that kind of touch up job (the idea is not to strip off all the old paint, being white, it makes the touch up easy)

Thanks!

I also have a white board that has had some serious nose damage ..no longer ..
the best paint I found was ...WATTYLE ...RUSTKILL ..gloss white ..it fades back after a few days ..but almost un noticeable
Why is it good ..it has a built in primer and is very tough.spray can ...no clean up .
2x light coats ..

international... epi fill. Is great stuff to fill..it s rock hard and can be smoothed off with water and finger .before it drys after 12 hours .

i can send picture of tin if you want .it s 2 pack .mix .( white) you can hit it with a hammer when dry .

rust kill has a built in premier .

I've had some success with Spray Putty from Supercheap.

Needs a few applications + sanding to really smooth it out. Then paint over the top with spray can paint.

I usually use a small can of auto touch up paint. You can get a wide range of different shades and it dries fast & hard. Use spray putty if you have a big repair.
