Looks like you've done a tob job there, glad the colour match is good.  Mind me asking where you got the paints?

Did they just match it to the car's paint code then?

Yes they just mixed it to the code, did not even use the colour chips against the bodywork for shade difference.

Hopefully the pics will show how good a match it is.

As I'm said I'm very impressed - can't wait to see it fitted.  Bet he's well chuffed!  The spoiler makes such a difference to the back of the car.

Yes it definately does make a difference. For my sins I have suggested we colour code the door handles next. There is enough paint and laquer to do it. Their seems to be quite a bit of black trim on an 'S'.

He started painting the calipers yesterday, done 2 and 2 to do tomorrow, they are blue but in my opinion red stands out better.

Every 3 needs the spoiler. Didn't know the 'S' door handles weren't colour coded. must look awful  :-[

Shame you don't still have the sport. I would like to know if the Sport disc/pads will swap onto the the smaller 1.4/1.6 setup or if you need the calipers etc.
