Hi

I'm looking at doing a repaint soon but can't decide on colour I have 4 shades of blue I like but want to see them all side by side before I decide

Is there anywhere that sells samples or will I just have to ask a body shop to create

Thanks
Neil

Check you local motorfactors of Halfords type place.

Mine mixes aerosol cans and nail varnish sizes touch up pots if I give them a paint code. It’s ideal for doing small swatches to decide on a paint colour.

Which blues are you interested in. Just done mine speedwell. Any paint shop worth its wotsit should sell any aerosol of whatever paint code for under a tenner to try.

Im looking at four different porsche blues; Mexico, Riviera, Miami, and Gulf. The first two are very similar and hard to tell apart Miami has more turquoise in it a Mexico seems more pastel

Ideally I want a sample to compare in different lights. A sample like they have in b&q would be good but they only do them for house paints
