    Default Painted Star Silver 3, but not quite...

    ... Because my car is SS3 with 7 and a bit years of wear and tear so it's a bit dull compared to factory fresh. Now failing getting a XP skirt painted AGAIN, is there any way I can 'age' the paint to get a closer match?

    Cheers.

    Possibly but it was painted as a favour, it wasn't fitted to the car at the time so it was just plain SS3 put on. I'll try and get hold of him and see what can be done.

    you could just try giving the car a good polish. Freshen up the paintwork on the rest of the car. would be cheaper than any sort of respraying
