I think the postcode will always look like a rather ugly scar. Why not replicate it on a label discreetly stuck to the serial number plate?

They used to fill spray cans for touch up, cellulose paint, that were significantly better for spraying than the cans you get in halfords and other similar places. Much better coverage and propellant and not much more expensive. Iím talking about 25+ years ago so regulations on what they can supply may have changed.
Modern (acrylic) proprietary aerosol sprays really are very good.
