I've found what I think is a good touch up paint for the BL4.
There were a few chips and a little edge wear I wanted to conceal so I started asking around and searching the net before zeroing in on some matt black paint for the Yamaha R1,R6 superbike.
The paint has quite a thick consistency, dries quickly and is a good match to Arri's proprietary paint on the BL4. I used a cotton bud to dab it on and I'm very pleased with the results.
Best of all; I found a 15ml bottle on ebay for less than a tenner.

The paint is a really good match, didn't take long to apply, dried in about five minutes and blended better than I thought it would.

The paint I used was listed with this title; YAMAHA R1 / R6 MATT BLACK TOUCH UP PAINT.
The one you found could well be the same as it's also for the R1 and R6.
It works well for disguising chips and scuffs on the 35BL4. Once dry just wipe over with a little WD40.

Thanks, David, I found the paint you're refering to. I want it for an Arri SRII which I'm sure should be ok.
