    Default Small cans of car paint

    I want to colour code some small bits (for example the antenna and mounting base). Where can one go to get a small quantity of paint with out the pain of going to a body shop? All my local Halfords don't do my colour so where else?

    Spray shop supplies will make up an aerosol for you for about £4 also Motorworld shops do the same all you need is your paint code

    As Ian said, just go to Vx Brocks. They sell spray cans of the paint for each of the colour codes. Less than a tenner iirc for a small can of paint and lacquer. Used this to colour code my Ed Taylor bee sting.....

    Cool didn't know Vx supplied the paint.

    Halfords stuff ain't bad at all. But they only have 1 shade of the colour.

    For instance Star Silver you can get there, but there are 8 different shades!
