    Default paint advice

    After sanding and priming my headlight brows it was time for paint. had to get it made up by halfrauds as they don't do it off the shelf (21a saturn blue). This was my mistake!! after much shaking, 5mins, it sprayed out in huge droplets in all directions, shaked for longer still the same result.

    I must admit the nozzle does look shocking, tried cleanin it out and no help, has anyone else had the same problem with paint made up for them by halfords? i will take it back tomorrow to hopefully get a refund!

    Do the stealers do aersol paint or will it just come in a pot? i don't have a compressor and don't want to fork out when all i'll be spraying is the brows!

    Any advice appreciated guys.
