Hope this is the right forum for the job...
Over the coming weeks i'm planning to get the engine cover painted & possibly also calipers. I've a black MK4.
I'll have to get the g/f to work some photoshop magic, but the colour i have in mind is the same orange you see on the Focus ST as it probably has been done before, but i've not actually seen it on any of the Astra forums. A bit of googling & i believe it's called "Electric Orange".
First off, i know the Hammerite stuff is ok for the calipers, but not sure if i'd need different paint altogether for a plastic engine cover??
Secondly, i went into Halfords to see what they had & it was quite poor actually. The orange sprays that they had were dark orange & not what i want.
£25? I don't bloody well think so!!
Does anyone know if 'paint is paint' or if i'd need different paint for the 2 jobs?
Also, what'd be a good bet for this shade of orange at a decent price? Something like B&Q maybe? I dunno, i'm at a loss. lol.
