Hi there, I input the 676 (which is the paint code) NV just refers to the finish. For bumpers - there is a colour called "Gris Graine" - a single coat 'solid' paint - does that sound about right to you?
Renault may not supply the colour on a retail basis, but since they can get it for their own purposes - so could you!
I would suggest enquiring with a trade shop which makes up aerosols to order - they will be able to advise.
Something else which I meant to ask was - has the colour been removed by the scuff, or is it just the surface been blemished? Reason I ask, is that sometimes plastic trim is self-coloured all the way through, and that if this is the case, then the gentle application of heat (via a heat gun) can be all that is needed to get the surface & texture finish very close to its original state.
Out of curiosity - I charge £100 to refurbish a bumper (regardless of damage, its a full service), what's the dealer asking? (if I'm not being cheeky)
Post a pic if you can.
Hope this helps,
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
