    the only reason i was hoping to get a close colour match was because ive seen a few dreadful diy refurbs that theyve tried to get the same colour as original, which hasnt worked. I may take them to get them matched if this is the case.

    Anyone else refurbed their own? which paint did you use?

    A common misconception.

    Alloys are normally painted with a hardened paint, not a "Paint code" as such.
    Definately not a Vauxhall body colour.
