    Some folk I know of have used these people before. Apparently, they are really good, know their stuff and the paint is cheap but good quality.

    I have not used them personally yet but may well be doing.

    I hope this helps.

    Halfords paint is pretty good. Bought some from my local paint store and tbh it was crap, mostly thinners. I have bought VX paint off ebay before too it it was superb, had loads of flake in it, but its expensive and in small cans.

    Halfords paint seems to be a different shade of black to my facelift. Don't know if iys because I'm comparing the grill and bonnet.
