    Default Accident Repairs - Silver lightening.

    My car has suffered some quite heavy damage at the hands of an Astra H which seems to have been visited by the good old Vauxhall handbrake gremlin! So my question is....

    Has anyone ever had panels replaced on a silver lightening car.... how good a colour match should I expect when I get the car back?!

    I didn't have extensive damage on my silver lightning but did need a replacement rear bumper and the colour match on that is nothing short of perfect. This was done by an insurance approved repairer in Loughborough, Leicestershire.

    Hope this gives you a little peace of mind.

    I had a repair done which needed part re-spray in Silver Lightning and it came back perfect. I'm amazed to hear of Tadpole's 13 variants - how come that's happened?

    Had a guy enter the code into his laptop for paint mix & this it what came up, I saw it so know it's a fact. Maybe Mr DonPaul could shed some light on the subject ......
