    Default Any 1 On Here With An Arden Blue VXR?

    The reason i ask, im after the exact paint code for it, i went to buy some Arden Blue paint and the guy behind the counter said there is 2 shades of Arden Blue, If you have a Arden Blue VXR can you have a look at the paint code on the inside of the drivers door please
    Thanks

    12L is the code for Arden blue, in a states has an arden as well, sure he can confirm the code as well ... In fact I think all the VXR`s on here are blue except mine, which makes me unique *lol*

    There are actually 5 shades of Arden Blue!!! If you look on the Vauxhall paint mixing charts most colours have more than one shade.

    Pomegranet has 3 shades for example, but you would need to have the two different cars next to each other and really look hard to tell the difference. The differences are only very slight.

    Yes they will, but they will all have the same factory paint code. What do you need help with.

    When my kit was painted for my Signum, only one paint code, but when this was typed into the paint system, it came up with the 3 shades with different descriptions, including one with a 'blue tint'.

    The paint shop had to make up some flash cards (I think thats what they were called) to ensure the correct shade was chosen.

    If you painting a hwole car, it should not matter which shade your picking as long as you use the same shade every time.
