    A mate gave it me, it's just halfords paint though, not even heat protective. But I'm sure it's Arden blue.

    just did mine yesterday in silver hammerite, don't stand out too much but I didn't want them to....prefer the Q-car look. On a blue gsi I'd go silver, black or a blue as close to the body colour as possible
