Got my eye on a Derosa Merak on Ebay that has a small ding and paint loss on top tube. What do you guys think of this? how repairable would it be as far as paint goes? also, is there anything that can be done cosmeticly to the ding to make it less noticable. also, looking at the picks it looks blue/silver paint scheme. Is that the colors or does someone else know the paint combo because the close up of the ding looks like black/gold.

That is really superficial. It isn't gold inside the ding, that is bare aluminum. That ding won't affect anything.

You can use touch up paint- automotive or maybe DeRosa sells a small bottle.

The color combination looks like one that was offered. THere were several inclucing the Flat Blue Vini-Caldirola, Red/Blue Alessio and I think that silver/black is a slightly older Merak...not too sure about that.
