    I used to work at Halfords a while ago, back when I was still a student lol !!

    I used to love mixing paint for customers. Surely the system, must be updated now but back then it was mostly in foreign languages so was hard to use and did not have that many codes to be honest lol

    They have cardboard cups, which you place on a set of scales, rest at zero and it tells you what amount of different colours to add.

    For example, it will say add white "034" to 0.6g and then 0.5g of yellow "452" taking it to 1.1g and so on !!!

    Then mix it with a lolly stick, thats what it looked like !

    Same system by the looks of it. Took ages to find mine but something to check is whether they looked at the several different Opel's which were listed like my Vec C was listed under

    i agree with moorlander the steelers are best atleast the colour matches. halfruads and independant paint suppliers all seem to mix perstige blue to dark even after ive given them the towing eye cover to match it to
