Re: Blue colour paint issue

This is one of those rare occasions where the same paintcode has been used twice by the same manufacturer.

From 1973 - 1977, 460 was Bleu Fonce.

From 1997 - current date its now Bleu Roy (2C).

As your daughter's car is an S-reg Clio, it'll be the second option.

If you are planning any spraywork, you need to use a black primer to ensure the correct shade of basecoat.



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