    gsi centre console paint colour/code?

    Just wondering if anyone knows what the actual name of the colour is which is used on the gsi centre console. the dark grey colour. I have just bought lightening silver as it looks like a close match, however now it looks a little too dark.

    A colour code would be awesome too



    Sorry wrong board also, should probably be in the interior section. If someone would be as kind to move it, Cheers

    Depends on the primer mate, did you use grey or black primer?

    Also if its halfords rattle cans you wont get a pefect color match as there shit for matches.

    there is no paint code for the grey coupe/gsi consoles AFAIK. there have been a few threads where people have tried to match it, but I haven't ever heard of anyone being 100% successful.

    If you're happy enough to respray it, then respray the whole lot in whatever colour you've got (Silver Lightning in your case) as it's not much more work to spray the extra bits as well as the console.
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    i've started, just about finished priming. Just wanted to know if anyone has a kind of close paint match as i think that silver lightining is going to be too dark.

    I'm spraying everything down to that little curved bit just past the gear surround
