    okay thanks and wheres the best place to get the paint from? am i right in thinking halfords dont do the red?

    scdavis, the vin pate is on the front cross section, ie the bonnet slam area.

    if you can find out the name of the paint, rather than the code, and google it, I'm sure you can find somewhere that does it. There is a thread on here somewhere that has all the codes listed and the names of the colours

    http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/sh...ht=paint+codes

    it says to 2001, I didn't realise! But I bet the majority of them are still the same. Also, I thought halfords could knock some paint up for you if they don't have it on the shelf?

    as long as u have the paint code they will mix u some up (even tho its only a 300ml bottle instead of a 400ml can) - but it does cost £12 (instead of £6)

    hmm ill have to check again, as i dont remember seeing it.

    yeah its a weird place to put it, as a mild front ender would kill it. Its also painted the same colour as the body (at least mine is).

    I'll try halfords for the paint, but also just seen a link on here to somewhere that mixes it up too.

    The post sticker (not the door itself, but between the two doors) states Z50C, and according to the paint4u website there is a colour pomegranite red with the code L50C. Perhaps Z50C is the same, or a slight variation.
