    Halfords & Ultra Blue Spray Paint

    Right I went into Halfords today (a super store) and tried to get a spray can of Ultra Blue only to be told that they don't stock that colour and I'd need to fork out £10 for a can of it to be mixed up.

    Has anyone found this as a item in the store or is it something that has to be mixed?

    Thanks!
    Crazy little Scottish lass!

    Go to Vauxhall and get it - it will be a proper match.

    The mix it up Halfards paint is only as good as the dude mixing it - AKA useless

    Vauxhall do - and you get the laqueur with it. It's about £6 for a twin pack.

    Halfords don't yet, but they may do in time. The now stock Prestige blue, but when I wanted some (about 18mounths ago) I had to have it made up, and it was closer to polar sea blue than prestige.

    Plus halford's customer service left a lot to be desired that time

    I bought some lacquer today but it'll no go wrong, will need to give them a wee phone on Monday and get it sorted so I can get with my plans.

    Aye Halfords up in East Kilbride (scotland) today were a nightmare, very unhelpful! I don't usually shop in the store, I just use it to window shop and then go and find what I want on the Internet somewhere cheaper!

    wouldn't buy halfrauds paint if they paid me

    check for local paint speciallist, £9ish for a can but it does tend to be good match
