Re: Clio 2 - Different shades of navy blue?

Not a daft question at all.

It is very rare to find only one shade of a particular colour available, this is why many bodyshop & trade paint suppliers carry paint chips to ensure the closest match possible.

Manufacturers buy in the paint from outside suppliers (who batch produce), so there can be differences from one model year to the next, either by accident, or deliberately.

In saying that, it shouldn't be a vast difference - what panel is it?



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