1997Clio RT Colour ARRRRGGGHH!

Hi, im having some trouble finding the right shade of paint for my mk1 Clio (sanded down rust on arches). I have found the code on the inside of the door which is 460. The problem is though, i went to Halfords to try and get some and on their computer about 10 different variations of 460 came up eg 460/1. I called the Renault garage and was told there is only one colour variation which is simply 460. What to do ???? Does anyone at all know how on earth i can find out which colour to actually get ? The car is a 1997 Clio RT MK1 Phase 3 In metallic blue. MMMmmmmm but which one ? Does Blue Roy sound right to anyone ?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Dave there doesn't seem much of a choice to me.

Renault have only one flavour of 460 = 1 paint from the manufacturer.

Halfords who try to do all things for all people give choices, the problems with choices with paint codes usually mean you get the wrong colour, if thats important to you then I'd pay more and go with Renault paint.

You could try looking in Yellow pages for a local auto paint supplier. I have a really good one 'round my way that can mix to any colour code and if necessary match to a panel.

They are normally quite reasonable as well, less than a tenner for a mixed aerosol.

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.

Halfrauds Renault Glacier White definitely doesn't match my car, which is Glacier White (OV369...)
