    Paintmatch for trek colors

    I've been using and abusing my 2020 fuel. I have a handful of nicks in the paint. 3 of them are significant. Does anybody know of any nail polish that matches the Miami Green, and/or the Teal? Thanks in advance.

    While I'm no nail polish pro, I can tell you the Pantone codes for the Miami Green which is PMS 3252 and Teal which is PMS 7714.

    That should help with locating a matching paint or having a touch-up pen created!

    Could these colours be posted in the Tech section of the dealer site with all the other bike info on part #'s and alternates.

    A big job (I know) but I know it would be a massive value-add to retailers when we're trying to help customers who've scratched their bike and want a paint touch up.

    I could make the request, but they don't even update us so we have to constantly reach out to request the paint codes.

    The problem with a lot of these are that the Pantone code is really only your base. It isn't a true match but it can help a professional mix a match knowing what the primary color is.

    For any of you guys running out to get a Pantone color matched, here's some advice from a guy that sells paint for a living.

    1. Most house paint stores, do not have a Pantone deck to match too. If they did, most of the time house paint pigments are not clear enough to get a goood match on Pantone Colors. Then the smallest amount of paint you buy will be a quart.

    2. Automotive Paint dealers can usally match Pantone Colors. But that paint can run $75 for a pint.

    Just FYI before y'all run out to buy paint.

    The Maaco around me will mix paint for $25 for 4 oz. Still not cheap, but better than a pint you'll never use.

    Thanks !! Knowing the primary base is still a start. We see a lot of requests for touch up paint and while that isn't an option (wish it was ) being able to tell them the base colour would still be a step up from "we don't know and can only recommend checking out nail polish colours at your local store".
