Default Feck! ...... Powercoat question

My mate and me were working on the bike and the drill slipped.... Is there anyway of 'touching up' powercoat?

some people have used nail varnish. Unless you get a better suggestion it might be better than nothing.

Humbrol enamel paint is quite good, failing that smoothrite!

Pretty much what every one else said, but i would go with either smooth right or engine enamel. Both oil resistant and a reasonable gloss finish, though pretty much any touch up will sink and may need a couple of coats, but make sure each coat is dry before applying the next or you may end up with a reaction.

Thanks all for the options. I've also checked the online mellow pages and theirs a powercoat place in the next village I might pop over and see what they say as well, failing that smoothrite will prob be a option.
