Painting Frame

I have a several areas of nicked up paint on my visible frame around where my boots are. Just looking for suggestions on how to make it look new again. I would hate to paint the whole thing since most of it above the weld is in perfect shape. Anybody have any tips on fixing/paint color/etc. THANK YOU!

Here is the factory frame paint.

Honda NH377M Core Black Metallic

BUT, keep in mind that the frame paint tends to fade over the years.

So what you are saying is just paint the whole thing because it probably won't match? Thanks for the link...... crap is expensive!

Yeah... I got my frame and swing arm powder coated for about $150. It is not 100% the same color but you could not tell unless they were side by side. Plus it is way more tough then paint.

Yeah I'm building an '80 CB and about to have it done but there is no way I'm taking the RC apart just to powder coat. It stays in the garage so hopefully paint will last for many years...... thanks again
