Hi there, thanks for coming back so quickly.

Yes, that's a colour - Bleu Methyl Effect - a metallic shade of blue.

The code part (which is probably how your supplier will list it) will be either under Methyl Blue or Renault 432.

When painting the scratch, I would recommend that you add some thinners to the paint, to avoid it clogging up when applying it (it then looks lumpy & uneven). Also, don't use the brush supplied (it is usually too broad/imprecise) dip the open-ended section of a paper clip into the brush to get the amount you require, and apply with care. Remember to periodically freshen-up the paint on the brush by re-inserting it into the tube and shaking it. I would also follow this process when applying the lacquer (thin it down a bit as well), which you will need to wait an hour or so to apply.

Hope that helps.


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