Went to my local auto paint store and had them mix me 1 litre of argon silver to paint bonnet,turned out a purple tinged silver,took the can back this morning and the guy said he had mixed it to the right fomula.I think not.So if I can get the right formula he can mix it to that.

Cheers

Powerplus make Argon Silver in small Touch up cans (Holts might do too) - might be wise to buy one and spray a test surface, and compare with yours, bar fading, should match within reason - then you have something to take to the guy as proof.
Also ask from the place you buy the touchup (Autobarn/Autopro/Supercrap, etc)for the formulas - they can usually mix and fill larger spraypacks, so they should have them.
I'd take it it's up the guy you got the paint mixed to rectify it - if you can show it's way off colour.

Other thing is, is the colour you want actually Argon Silver - have you confirmed it from the codes above ??
IIRC it does have a slight blue/purple tinge to it.
