Re: yellow megane paint code
Hi there and welcome.
Whilst they may cite H&S as being the reason, paint mixing (especially involving aerosols) is quite a costly process, so you'd probably find cost-cutting as being the actual reason why it isn't offered at every branch.
In all honesty, there are many companies out there, some are online (do a google search), and others are wholly independent, making paint for small bodyshops & the trade.
Remember to use the correct primer for your car, as that can affect the matching.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
