Yes, I've just used that very stuff! Aren't the tins small? I used primer, 2 x tins of base-coat, top coat and a bottle of liquid paint for future touch-up. It cost a whopping ~ £100 from Germany and although it JUST did the job, it didn't go TOO far! A perfect colour match, though!

It's best to either quote (as I have with your post), or mention when asking a particular member a question.


Two of the many ways to mention:


Put '@' immediately in front of the username @RLander


or bracket the name thus [MENTlON]USERNAME[/MENTlON]


Russ?

Do you have an update?

Sorry folks, didn't update this ....yet!

I did one door panel and the arm rest.

Results were perfect, besides some over spray on my part, but it is time consuming.

Over the winter months (December - January) I will be updating more hope to finish the inside but taking out the seats and taping it all off.

Pictures to follow in the next few months (also planning on upgrading the interior lighting

@DAJ 190 yes the tins are hella small, but they do go quite a long way.

Hi @Avel Du, thank you for the tip!

@RLander That would be awesome to see the result. I'm planning to paint my dashboard console for the winter project as well. I just haven't got a courage to start it,
