I bought the Halfords stuff. Half the price and a good match.

Using the end of a cocktail stick is good, let it dry hard and then the following week flat it smooth with some very fine 3000 grit wet and dry paper used with soapy water, before polishing back to original glory

No, aslong as the paint it totally dry and cured.

3000 grade paper is only slightly rougher than your average bogroll!
