Had this with my (Rubbish) Ford Ranger. No official Seat supplied paint or touchup sticks available because it's a new colour.

They also don't plan to make the copper trim as a touchup colour :roll:

Already got a few chips out of the copper spoiler. That's what happens in the new age of 0.0000000000001mm thick, eco Penguin friendly paint.

I'll get the colours scanned at work and have a couple of pens made up

You should definitely have availability of the main colour of your car - it's the same shade as what is called "Manganese Grey" on the ID3 that is made on the same lines at Zwickau.

You might find a few potential takers here for Copper touch up pens if it's economical to do more than a few. Haven't got any copper chips yet.

Yes. If I get a decent match on the copper paint pens, then I will get some extra for in here

Chipex (Chipex.co.uk) have the body paint colours listed, although they have them under Seat>Cupra Born and the names are not exactly the same as we have them (i.e. Aurora Blue is Azul-Lava, the red is Merlot-Red, but they don't have the copper listed.
Anyone who needs the copper could contact them, quote their reg no and ask about it.

Purchased a bottle of this and it is ENTIRELY the wrong colour :roll:
This isn't anywhere near the copper colour on a Born

Tell us about the wrapping process, where to get the materials etc. I may be tempted to have a go!

I bought off Amazon UK the following which I had researched online, it's worth watching YouTube installation videos to get the right technique. I had plenty which is good as it took 2 attempts before I was happy. The copper front spoiler shape is quite complicated so you'll need a good hot air gun or hair dryer, then the film will stretch and shrink.
