    Exclamation Cant find spray cans in my colour!!!

    I started obviously at hafrauds, they have the touch up paint for Star Silver 3, but they didnt have spray cans.

    Theres none anywhere!! I want to spray my skirts and bump strips myself, to save on costs ofc..

    But i cant for the life of me find anywhere that sells spray cans in Star Silver 3.....

    Any ideas?

    you can defo get it from halfords iv bought it from there before of the shelf, but by the time youve bought all the cans you need ie primer, colour and laquer, it probaly wont be any cheaper than a pro doing it especially larger items like skirts, and youll get a better finish from a body shop

    honoustly, massive halfords near me, they dont even have a space on the rack for star silver 3, even asked and they said they dont stock it :S

    i suppose thats true, i might have to look into an estimate for it

    the guy seemed pretty blunt when i asked if they could get any and he was like nahhh
    Maybes a crappy salesperson who was meant to be selling mountain bikes?

    Also what is the general opinion on self painting?

    well i enjoy it, if you take your time and do it properly then you wont have a problem. You'll also have a sense of acheivement as you've done it yourself.

    Just ask them to mix it for you. i believe the colour code is 157

    ye i dont know why but in halfords they have star silver 3 in a touch up pen but not in a spray can.....no idea why though haha

    Should be able to mix it for you no bother though but as said for the amount of paint your going to need you might be cheaper getting it done in a body shop mate

    The Star Silver in cans at Halfords is Star Silver 1.

    Vauxhall will sell it in cans, but it'll be cheaper from a paint supplier. Look in your local Yellow Pages for ones local to you.

    Oh and by the way, Halfords is a bike shop, not a car paint supplier.

    Star Silver 3 is Z157
