    Paint - Star Silver 2 - Colour Matching

    Help. I have to repaint some spare panels, ie bonnet, bumper and left guard after a crash. My car is Star Silver 2 (82L-83U) and the paint is in great condition.

    I have read lots about not being able to match the paint up, and it will look shoddy when re-painted.

    Has anyone ever re-painted or patched a Star Silver 2 Astra, and if so, have you had any luck.

    Any advice on how I could get it to match, e.g., distance of spray gun etc.

    Thanx heaps.

    The bodyshops will mix all the possibles provided by then paint scheme and will make spray out cards. They will then match them by eye to the car in daylight or with a daylight gun.

    If you are doing it yourself then I think it is likely to be pot luck.
