paint match!

ok got my skirts in and went to halfords to buy paint ,got it mixed and this is the 3rd! time this has happened to me ,they have got the paint wrong! it is too light! every single time ,they have 2 colours that have the same code so they mixed both up and i bought them ,bloody ****s!

now i need to get a proper match somehow,or a body shop can paint the parts ,

how much would a bodyshop charge to paint a set of skirts and a bonnet?

Re: paint match!

Halfords couldn't even make me a decent number plate, 3 attempts and I got my money back lol.

Try a local body motor factors, I have one dedicated to body work, 100m from my local halfords. Def worth a shot!

not sure about pro spray costs though, best to ask about....I'd guess around 100 but that is not based from experience at all.

I have no idea - but if you find out let us know as I need my bonnet re-sprayed.

Re: paint match!

depends where you go.. you could be looking from around 150 in a dodgy backstreet place to around 400+ in a reutable dealer approved garage.
