Good advice already given.

The only potential area for a problem may be that most bodyshops have converted to water-based paints, which can only be used for spraying, not touching in stonechips/scratches...

There are alternatives; I have a local paint supplier who will mix whatever quantity of paint you require based upon the paint code. I'm sure you will have one also.

FYI DXA is also known as Olive Sable effect, and the KXA is also known as Gris Argent Effect.

When you do get your paint, I would suggest thinning it down a touch, as they tend to be a bit too thick to apply smoothly in small quantities.

Hope this helps,


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