    Ultra Blue Paint?

    Hey guys

    Not long had this new car and now looking at doing some of the normal color-coding bits. Now i'm pretty sure my body color is Ultra Blue. I went in to Halfords as it's the easiest place to try and they don't seem to do this color?

    Am i just being silly? If not can anyone recommend a good place to get paint for this?

    Here is my car below. Am i looking for the right colour?

    Cheers Coo

    I'll check that site out. I was gonna check the doorcheck but i thought i'd put the post up in the meantime.

    I'll check the paint code shortly and update the thread when i know it.

    Cheers again

    halfords can do it, they just said no as they can't be bothered with mixing paints, My brothers car is ultra blue and he mixed some up when he was at work there.

    Hey Rizo

    Cool. I didn't get to ask any of the staff there but i was looking at the range of sprays and Ultra wasn't covered. Do you or your brother have any idea how much it costs normally to mix a can of spray?

    Cheers for your help

    When i was having the bodykit fitted to my old car they took the paint code but then said there is about 8 different shades of ultra blue. in the end they took the petrol cap down to the paint shop to match it up.

    Ahhh multiple shades make things trickier.

    Well mostly it'll be for interior color-coding so a color match won't be the most important factor.

    Well i shall find the paint code and also investigate the local VX dealer.

    Cheers guys
