    I used AutoPaint at St.Helens Tel 01744 818102 (www.auto-paint.co.uk)

    Very impressed, told them the 3 digit colour code for my Oxford Green (430) and they sent me a large 400ml can in the post, I received it the next day.

    Colour match was perfect price of can was half the price of a touch-up 150ml can from the dealers, I paid a total of £11 inc Vat & P&P.

    Paint code on my car was under the bonnet, by the nearside front suspension turret.

    Halfords seem ok for the spray cans.... I got some Topaz Blue and lacquer for my new parking sensors, really good..!
    About £7 a can...

    what gives a better finish the touch up brush or the spray cans? deos it go straight on or do you have to put lacquer on it first?

    spraying is always preferable to brushing, but a lot depends on how large the area is that needs paint...if its just stone chips a brush will be fine
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.
