    Colour coding help ?

    Hi all,
    I'm planning on colour coding the bump strips on my Astra g 5 door hatch & basically i just need to know would a 150ml spray can of colour paint & 150ml spray can of laquer be enough for all 4 bump strips or would i need more, The reason i ask is that i have found genuine vauxhall paint on Ebay for 11.99 for 150ml of paint & 150ml of laquer, Obviously i'd need primer too but can anyone tell me from experience how much paint is needed??
    Thanks in advance.

    TBH last time i bought genuine Vauxhall paint was from Vauxhall them selfs and was cheaper that £11.99, i think it was about £9.50.

    Be be worth a trip to you local dealers and ask them the price

    If you find out the definite code for the car

    (Going to get slated for this)

    But you can get rattle cans (300ml) mixed up at halfords for £9:99

    Providing you get the right code, and you do the spraying in a proper manner it will turn out good

    Well as a rough guide

    I used 1 300ml can of glacier white on my bump strips, thats all four, and I got about 5-6 layers out of the can
