I bought an Auto F today. It works and sounds great, but the paint is dinged up and chipped in several places. So I was wondering what type and color of paint would I use to replicate the gray and white colors of the vacuum. I would also welcome any tips/advice for painting this vacuum. Thanks for any help.

re-paint it the same color so it won't loose any of it's value.

Oh don 't worry

I'm going to. I wouldn't dream of repainting it a different color. I want as close of a match as possible.

could you show a picture of it so I can diagnose a possible solution?

try taking it to one of the places that has a computer to create colour match paints. They are pretty good.

I tried to show some of the bad area. It doesn't look as bad as it does in person. Sorry for the quality, I took it with my phone.
