    Where can i buy paint?

    I went into my local halfords today to get some paint for my car (as im colour coding something) and they dont stock it. Rang up VX and got the paint code 4DU - Royal Blue.

    They can make some up but its £12 where as the ready made is only £6. Anyone know where else i can get it apart from the dealer (even tho they only wanted about £9+vat for it)
    Not sure if you can get paint online?

    halfords mix paint for i think a pound extra then the ready made ones.
    The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

    Paints4u.com - lots of people have used them with good results.

    Otherwise find your local paint shop, there will probably be one where the smaller bodyshops go to buy their paint and supplies.

    Halfords paint = utter shite

    paints4u FTW

    Crackin service and quality/paint match second to none

    VX paint is good but only comes in measly 150ml cans of no use to any fecker!

    With the Halfords paints you do tend to get a fans pray nozzle aswell, actualy with most paints you get mixed in a can you do, so theres always that advantage of getting it mixed rather than buying a ready made.
