    Default Not all black paint is the same colour !

    I need to touch up a hand sized area of my Tridion after the recent brush with a wall.
    Anyone found an off the shelf aerosol paint from Halfords etc which is a match to the Smart black ?
    Halfords have 34 different black car paints !

    There was a thread running a few months ago where a new Smart owner was quite incandescent that his all black car was two different blacks - on the panels and the Tridion. So be extra careful which one you choose

    It also gives the generic paint code, the C series, I understand that you can get paint with that code.

    I've found that 3M gaffer tape is quite a good colour match ! The damage I needed the paint for is worse than originally thought (metal stretched) so I'll need to cut a section out of a scrap car and weld it in place. I might as well, therefore, wait until then before bothering with paint.
