hi all,

im having a nightmare trying to get hold of 3or4 cans of my colour code 287 mauritious blue.

its not a colour off the shelf, iv tried halfords and a few local paint supplies shops but they want between £15-£25 per 300ml can :(

i live in sutton, in surrey, if anyone knows somewhere i can order from or go buy a few cans of my colour, which im assuming will have to be mixed up rather than off the shelf for a better price than halfords, please let me know.........

Dan.

How close do you need the match?
The last time i bought one, the colour guide said
Mauritius blue can = montego blue paint,
so if you wanted Mauritius blue, you had to chose a rover montreal blue..

or something like that anyway - either way, it was a tetrosyl spray can, with a guide book to cross reference what different manufacturers called the same colour.

the other choice is a paint sprayers/suppliers as they can make up a colour and put it in an aerosol.

you can go to halfords and get some mixed up in front of you and the put into a can rather than buy off the shelf same price tho ! or if you have quite a bit to spray get 1/2 a litre mixed up :thumbsup
