Hi guys, Can anyone tell me whether this colour (B8) is available off the shelf in a small pressure pack?
I've a checked a few stores that stock PowerPlus paints but they have no listing for Bordeaux (B8).

Cheers
Jason

Nope

However some panel beaters are able to mix it up to the exact spec and fill up a pressure pack for you. I had mine done up for $30 a can...... the colour was spot on, because they have the 'formula' in a computer program.

Theres a s**t of pearls in the bordeaux colour

Thanks mate, I just have to touch-up a side mirror so didn't want to spend that much. I'll just hunt around for a Bordeaux mirror.

Cheers.

$30 isn't that much, plus you'll be able to save it a use it to touch-up other things later on (like stone chips, etc).

There's a place down here that do a 350G (?, a full size one anyway) can for $25. Very good value and quality. Plus the nozzle is designed to mimic that of the proper spray guns. And they work well for small jobs if used properly.
