Re: Paint Codes

The paint code not only gives the proportions of the various tints involved, but also the quantity/type of aluminium flake.

I would however, mention the year your car was made, but also be aware that there may be some difference (even with the correct year of paint being used), simply because red cars oxidise and react more prevalently than any other colour.



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