    hey guys, i have an e36 328isc, need todo some body work repair, dreaded rust on arches, and spots here and there, but not sure whats the closest color match to "schwarz 2" (well thats what the colour says under the bonnet?) wondering if anyone can help and suggest which paint to use??

    ideally one of the colours from halfords? (link below) not sure if any will match though?

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...7CPrice%7C%7C1

    any help or advice would be great
    thanks
    luke

    this is the same as cosmos/schwartz but not schwartz II

    the stealer will stock cans of paint, or any body shop can make you a can.

    Get the 3 digit code from under the bonnet...Take this to a paint shop and get it made up Personally I would not use halfords because from experience their paint is not a very good match

    £20 ish, it will be a small can tho.

    as with any car that is outside in the elements and with the sun beating down on it - even if you buy the stock colour, its doubtfull it will match you car 100%.

    blending the paints to match is literally an art - its not hard (if you know how)

    if you gona paint splitters or mirrors etc then rattle cans are fine, any large areas and i would always advise gettin a body shop to do it.

    i had some paint properly matched to the car (age and discolouration taken into account - it was matched exactly) cost me £20 for 5ltrs, and £10 for a medium rattle can (can did 2 coats on a rear spolier)

    i had both rear arches, 1 sill, osf arch folded back in , filled and painted, bonnet touched and boot touched for £150. if your ever down my way i can get you some very cheap, very good work done
