    Default Where to buy paint from

    Hi all,
    I am after some bamboo green paint so I can attempt to clolour code my mud flaps and maybe have a go at my grill. Does anyone know where I can buy some without having to order it??
    Not sure if Halfords stock it.
    Cheers in advance.

    Halfords do deals usually, 3 for £x etc... or any car part shop should stock it. mudflaps and grill are small enough you'll get a decent finish with rattle cans...

    Halfords only stock half the Vauxhall paint colours. You can get a paint and clear lacquer twin pack from Vauxhall dealers for a tenner.

    cheers guys. sorry to ask silly questions, but here goes... When painting mud guards, do you paint the whole thing? And does the standard grill come apart so just the chrome parts can be coded? Obviously want to leave the griffin chrome!

    You can get it mixed for you in halfords, i got some bamboo green mixed up for some colour coding. i used an airbrush so got a tub of touch up paint, but they also do the rattle cans. costs around £8.50 mine was a spot on colour match.

    regarding spraying your flaps - make sure you give them a good rub down first so that they are completely smooth

    and regarinf your grille - remove it and you can pop the griffen off and then give the rest a good rub over with a light grade wet dry to abrade the surface before priming and painting - the rest of the plastic bits can be masked off so that they dont get painted
