colour matching paint??????

Hay all, got some questions about colour matching.

I have a few bits in the paint work that aren't quite right and i don't reeeeally have have money to repaint the whole thing. IN a hole the pain isn't to bad other than a bit of rust in the guards and a bit in the drivers door. The paint looks alot like Linna Mint but its not. IM worried that if i get some "matched" paint it wont be right and it will look like crap.

Just want to know how successful colour matching actually is and if i can just paint little bits at a time or do I have to redo the WHOLE panel??? or am i better off just waiting to do the whole thing, and if so, what can i do to the rust in the mean time to stop it from getting really bad, with out having a car covered in spots of primmer????

Cheers mate, I love it too.

Wish I knew what it was. The missus lost the paper work that came with it when we bought it and in it was the paint code :-(

ive just had some paint color matched for the bonnet of my monaro
gave them the bonnet of my car and left it with them for a few days
they assure me its right
i suppose it depends on how good your paint man is
ive had paint mixed once before for my car and the job was terrible
good luck with it
cheers

if my calculations are correct,when this baby hits 88 mph your gunna see some serious s#*t

I've had it done, with excellent results, however, I reckon over time, it would have to fade slightly differently to the old paint.

Even if the match is not perfect, I reckon your better of repairing any rust and getting it touched up, gotta be better than not repairing it and letting it get worse.

"Junk is something you throw out 3 weeks before you need it"

I was going to say take the fuel flap of and take it to an auto paint shop. But I just realised its probably got a chrome one.
Maybe try the front skirt if its easy enough to take off. Maybe you can lave the car with them.....
