    Default What Primer, Paint, Lacquer?

    Im looking to colour code a few bits of the plastic interior. I've got a 2002 dark blue vectra which I believe is called ultra blue? What primer, paint and lacquer would those that have done before recommend or warn me to stay clear of? Can I get a paint match off the shelf? I'm after an aerosol can as Im only doing little bits, also what wet and dry to use? Thanks.

    would it be the same for doing exterior parts aswell? Is the paint expensive?

    just put light coats on and keep a gentle heat on it....will stop any runs or reacting.
