    piano black dash

    guys, might sound a stupid question but is the colour actually called piano black? or is it just gloss black?

    No, you need to get the panels from VX themselves unless you're talking about a rattle can?

    Not far wrong there Lee. I've been spraying some plastics for a work mate in gloss black for his vectra c after he fell in love in my piano black in the VXR. I've been using Halfords cans. White plastic primer (2 coats), Gloss black paint (5 coats), clear laquer (3 coats) and they've been coming up lovely.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
