PostPosted: Mon Jul 31, 2017 9:47 am    Post subject: Is Porsche Best place for touch up paint - B9A carerra white Reply with quote

May sound a silly question but is it?
The B9A code is used on a number of vehicles.
I'm about to order some from porscheshop or take a trip to my local(ish) OPC

Some places on line are between £5 and £8.
I don't think I'd dare risk it but I've also read that some official paint can bE off colour as well..

Anyone used any and any issues with match?

Just got a Basalt Black kit from eBay and used it at the weekend.

I already have the proper Porsche version, but the brush it comes with is no good for small chips and I've found using cocktail sticks (recommended by some) to be quite tricky too.

I got a Halfords kit a while ago for another car, and it was the best kit I'd ever used; (a pen with a very small nib).

As the eBay Basalt pen was in the same style, that's what I got, and it was brilliant Thumb

Nice. Ive always used the OEM ones before but yes the brush is crap. The one you got from ebay above looks great - did you get Just Paint or Lacquor and Primer as well?

Cheers

Dan

Yep, they only seem to have certain colours. I'm trying to find a zenith blue one for my Boxster, but no luck.

I would contact the seller from the eBay link and see if they'll do a carrara white pen for you

I've never used a pen before only a brush and I really like the idea of a pen for accuracy.
There are some on amazon that look like marker pens. They are around 20 quid

I've contacted him also - he assured me that carrera White is the same colour as candy white and other whites in the VAG group.
They Carry the same code B9A or LB9A.
So he has the match.
thumbsup (hopefully if it's a v good match!)

Got mine today from this seller.
Looks bang on, so easy to apply rather than a brush. Well pleased with it - will check again in the morning.

Agreed - pleased with the results today.
Can hardly tell they have been touched in where as if I'd have used a brush it would be a big blob of raised paint! Very Happy

Looks to be much the same principle as this one used by the Ammo man on Flat Sixes.com - in which case, it looks good.

Couldn't find a UK source of the Loew-Cornell one he uses, though. (Loew Cornell Fine Paint Pen (size #1)

I got a scratch repair kit from Chipex and was able to order the exact colour based on the paint code. Came with a load of very small brushes, paint etc. Not used it yet but will soon.

You must be a mind reader. I saw this video the other day and was going to ask on here whether that pen was available in the U.K. It looks like a good bit of kit.

I take it that these kits/pens mentioned in this thread operate in a similar manner with the tapping motion to release the paint in tiny doses?

Hmm, well I contacted the Seller through his eBay link and so far - nothing!

Anyone else tried and had a reply yet?



17 August - still no response. Anyone else had a similar experience or is he answering?
