Inka car owners...Have you ever found a color match in

Mike, auto parts stores who supply paint to body shops can mix you rattle cans by paint code. I had some nevada made (by Crow-Burlingame) a few years ago locally and it was about $15 per can.

I had some Inka paint mixed by a local paint shop and put in rattle cans - did my roll cage and interior panel touch up with it. Came out just fine. Theoretically you'll have a limited shelf life, but some of the cans lasted for about four years before they stopped working.

Yes, see:

Paint code is 022.

You'll need to buy a can of clear coat to cover it.

well that paintscratch looks like good quality for sure...

but I found a very close color in Rustoleum Industrial... it's in a larger (16oz?) can for 5-6 bucks. I won't be able to tell you the paint code because I'm away right now, but it just said "orange". and it's the "Industrial" product they carry... with a picture of a hard hat on it.

It's gloss already but I suppose you could do a clear over that as well... might help it blend in better.

I tried Dr. Color Chip (not a spray though) with disappointing results. It's expensive, too. I've always wondered if the dealer could get touch up Inka - probably not. It would be possible to put it in a small spray device.

Another good way to get great results for touch ups is to buy a Preval sprayer. This is a small bottle with a sprayer attachment that you can put your own paint in. Then you attach a CO2 cartridge to it. Very nice results and reuseable with all your small paint jobs. Available at most automotive paint stores.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
