    Just to add that although Vauxhall is obviously a good place to source paint - their twin pack rattle cans (colour & lacquer) only come in dinky little 150ml cans.

    for a few quid more you can get a good healthy 400ml size can from a quality stockist such as www.paints4u.com

    If, however its just touch up u need - spray or touch up pens then Vauxhall may be the most convenient option.

    79L / L547 Flame Red 150ml Aerosol twin pack - part number 90371900
    79L / L547 Flame Red Touch up twin pack (brush on) - part number 90371901
