If your gonna buy paint, make sure you buy good stuff not that cheap celly crap from halfrauds! Standox, Spies Hecker,
Max meyer, Lechler. Du pont aren't too bad but it's celly e, stick to those 4 i swear by them on my daughters life, all i used to use and u-pol for the laquer and hardeners and thinners. They can be expensive from the wrong supplier but damn it's good gear. Oh and make sure it's 2k (2pack) aqua base is a dog to work with, synthetic takes forever to dry and cure, cellulose dries in 20 mins but isn't durable. " pack takes 24 hours but is rock hard like factory paint.

Unfortunately most modern paints are designed for oven or infra-red heat drying and curing and really don't suit the DIY market - although heating small areas first helps quite a bit

Hi there, sorry I've been on a short break, and was having a read through when I spotted your thread.

(MV) 454 is a colour called Bleu Egee Effect (a blue) - the MV refers to the finish, in this case Metalisse Vernis - a lacquered metallic.

Just ask for Renault 454, and you'll be fine.

Hope that helps,


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
