    Default Quick paint question

    I have my signum which as you know the previous owners must have made a serious enemy as they decorated it in paint stripper. I have been offered a bonnet and two wings in star silver 2AU but my paint code is star silver 157. Is it just a case of vx changing codes or did they change the paint too? Can anybody help?
