Re: 1998 scenic paint code

Personally, I would always buy paint which has been freshly made up, rather than one that may have been sitting in a warehouse/on a shelf for an indefinite period.

It helps remove any issue of the paint not being mixed properly, prior to application.

In any case, the aerosol has to be shaken vigourously for a couple of minutes even between coats. (sorry if that sounds obvious).

If you are blending-in the fresh paint with the existing paint - I would always recommend holding a sheet of card between the aerosol & the bodywork, rather than using masking tape - that way you avoid the hard edge, and the paint change is more gradual between what has been applied, and what's already there.


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