    I've got code 226679 for Grigio Mercury. Yes the base is 1:1 with 2k thinners followed by 2k clear. I use a pretty cheap Sealey gun (S701G) I bought off Amazon. If I knew I'd be painting as much as I have over the last couple of years I would have bought a half decent DeVilbiss or something but the Sealey has done everything I needed it to do. But if you're doing just a couple of paint jobs a year, you can't really justify spending £100 on a spray gun. Mine was about £30 I think.

    Sorry, I can't be messing with other people's stuff. I don't mind risking my own car but I'd hate to mess up on someone else's pride and joy. Besides, I'd take twice as long as a professional so it probably wouldn't be any cheaper and not as good either keeping in mind I don't have a booth like them.

    Preliminary inspection, probably my best effort yet. A few specs of **** here and there, which is unavoidable when you're just using your garage, but they're easily removed once cured. I'll reassemble in a few days and take some pics when its back on the car. Time for a well earned beer.

    Haven't held it up to the bonnet yet. The colour was originally matched to the washer cover on the bumper though so it 'should' be the same. I'll wait for it to cure some more before I handle it.

    Just put the bumper in situ to check the match and I can't say I'm not happy with that.
