Angry Beware of Halfords paint.

I took a perfectly matching touch-up pencil to the Halfords store and checked it with the cap on a "colour service Cross Match spray can" listed as the right colour for the car.
I used the spray on an area of door, but it came out much lighter. The clear coat that followed was supposed to result in a match but it failed miserably.
I have had to stencil over the resulant mess with the proper, matching touch up brush. The paint match is now fine, but the finish is rubbish. At least it will keep the rust off!
