    Default Can you get spray cans of paint..

    in factory colours from Vauxhall??

    I'm going to get one of the VXR inserts and might paint it myself. I did get a 'C grade' in Art, so I should be ok

    Also, will it need lacquer after my handywork??

    Thanks

    Yep, Vx dealers sell a twin pack of aerosols - one of paint, one of lacquer. Exact colour match and cheaper then the Halfords equivalent! Just get your paint code off the B pillar plate.

    Are these a perfect match as guys keep saying aerosols aren't a match, or is this referring to halfords the ****?

    I've found the Vx ones spot on whenevver I've used them. Only done small things - Ed Taylor aerial and colour coded foglight surrounds, but it looked spot on. It's the Halfords ones that I've heard people comment on not being a very good match.

    The codes will be best - ensures no mistakes. It's on the bottom left of the plate on the driver side B pillar.

    In addition the codes can change from model year to model year or a least they did on the Astra G (Star Silver). I would do as Duncan suggests.
