    anyone had Vaux mix them some paint up?

    I know you can pull the paint off Halfords shelves. Some say it's cack, others say it's not too bad. Just read a thread now where a guy mentioned Halford's mix up is a better match than the cans on the shelves.


    As Vaux took a long time to reply last time i asked them a question .... has anyone had their paint mixed up from Vaux? Just wondering if there's something of a standard, or even a guide price

    Well if that's any sort of guide then it'll be knocked on its head before it even starts lol. I'm not shelling £24 for a mini-can.

    just get it from www.paints4u.com

    proper 400ml cans for about £14

    Vauxhall charge about £10 for 2 x 150ml cans!!! 1 base & 1 lacquer - rip off

    I always get my paint from the above supplier and the service and quality is top notch

    Not a bad deal that. Good to bear in mind.

    I've done the grille. STILL waiting on the badge arriving for it. When it comes & i can stick the grille on, i'll see how it blends in,

    Cheers for the linkup

    The last time I got paint from halfords it was rubbish. I tend to use Autopaint or a local company called supertune. Should be an Autopaint near you somewhere

    I wonder if it depends on the colour of the paint (from Halfords) then? As Bigstring just did his bump strips & is pleased with the match. Using the search option on the bump strips found another couple people pleased with Halfords paints.
    Although i've read an equal amount, if not more, being unhappy.


    Let's hope they do a good Midnight Black match as it'd be so much easier if i could just pick up the paint from there

    i can never find my colour in halfords as there all called by a cerain name andnot by the number that i go by.

    20q if any one knows the name of that colour.

    i had motor world mix me a can up for about 8 quid and that was a spot on colour match.
    The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
