    Default Colour match, Bamboo green parking sensors

    Hi,
    Has anybody fitted these parking sensors in the No22 Light green colour to a bamboo green vec/sig or does anybody think they would be a good colour match.
    I have a meta parking sensor fitted at the moment but i sprayed it to match the colour of the car and its never worked properly since constantly beeps. so looking for some replacments that dont need painting.
    Cheers

    best bet is to go to vx and get an aerosol can to match your paint code ,
    cost you around a tenner for a two pack set of paint +lacquer

    WOAH, another Bamboo owner!! Well I never!!

    That is the exact kit I bought for my Signum, I went with 22 as it looked closest, but when it arrived they are well off.

    BUT

    It's a good starting base colour.

    Next go to here

    http://www.paints4u.com/ProductDetai...productID=5021

    And order selecting your colour by entering the colour code 393

    When you've got the paint, pop 4 holes into a cereal box (or similar) and give 4-5 very light coats, followed by 2 or 3 very light coats of laquer. Since fitting, they've worked perfectly.

    The paint from these guys is a near perfect match, if you can wait until tomorrow night I can get some pics in the daylight tomorrow for you.

    Yea mate get some pics up so i can see what they are like. I got some paint mixed up at halfords, but i think the main problem might of been the metal flake, in which i then sprayed on the parking sensors which is why they constantly beep when in reverse.
