I have been trying for a few weeks now to fix a few stone chips in the front of my bonnet but am having trouble finding a brand that matches my paint.

My car is heron white and have tried 2 brands, powerplus and something else cant remember:bang:.

Does anyone know of a brand of paint that has a heron white that comes anywhere near the same as the stock paint or is this an impossible task.


Cheers

Or would autobarn be able to match the herron white properly?

i will go to holden either today or tomorrow and find out.

a mate also suggested a paint shop, like solver or the like, and get them to match it. this would mean removing something like the fuel cap and taking it in so they could match it

something black
if you go to a paint shop just get the paint code and they should be right.

yeah u can get it from paint code but how perfect is the origianl color, as white stains etc over time so even if u got a new batch of herin white it may be brighter then the origianl.. so either match ya fuel cap at paint shop or get some cutting compound on the rest of the car to bring it back to its true colour again

this is exactly my problem

going to car shops with the paint code is fine and thats what i have done but the white is brighter than my car becuase it is fadded over 4 years, this is why taking the fuel cap and getting a match is hopefully going to work better
