    The paint code 632 is hard to match at the best of times, I wouldn't even try with rattles

    I bought some 632 gris boreal when I was spraying my wing mirror covers on my old clio, the colour match looked ok in some lights but completely off in others. Deffo a hard colour to match, and will stand out even more on the side strips etc as they are right next to the rest of the bodywork, where as the wing mirror covers arnt.

    I've got the exact same problem ah the moment. Went to halfords to get them to mix up 1 can of platinum silver... Just so I could test it out. Came out a pretty much spot on match for the car so I decided I'll go get a couple more, used them and it came out more of a blue silver!! Was gutted! So I've just decided to find a professional to do it. Think one of my old mates from school does it so I'm gonna give him a ring and get a price.

    I colour coded my sidestrips the other week and have the same colour. Like what's already been said, it looks perfect in some lights but others it just looks plain silver instead of the bluey-silver it should be. I guess its just a hard colour to match :worried:

    Notice on this last picture how it matches perfect on the left hand side but on the right it seems to shine a true silver. I just don't understand :confused: :banghead:

    Does it look toss when done? Or is it still better than before?

    Deffinatly a colour that needs blending into original if new panels and on smaller stuff like strips etc, only real trick to 'help' is to spray the panels in same orientation as theyre gonna sit, ie get a big sheet of wood and screw a line of screws into it horizontally and then clip screw heads into clips on back of strips as if clipping onto car.

    If gunning it with 2k youll get the gloss straight away AND depth of pearl providing you did 3-4 coats of base min, if aerosoling it, do atleast three or four coats and use as best quality laquer as you can, i have personally had reasonable results with upol stuff as its good quality with low shrinkage and good straight off shine, youll never get gun quality shine though untill flatted and polished and then it wont be as hard.

    I run my own Smart repair business here in Devon autohaus Paint Technics and I have sprayed this colour before a few times. Your right about the colour match as it is rather bad, but you have to remember that there are at least 20 different shades so I generally go for the number 1 shade. I never do edge to edge with a metallic or pearl so always blend it in to the other panel. I can usually see where Iv blended it in but my customers have always thought the match was perfect. If you can, always use good quality 2K paint like Autocolour or Spies Hecker as I never usually have a problem using these products.

    find a local paint/bodyshop supplier to mix it for you, not halfords! paint needs to be mixed perfectly, quantities of each colour needs to be spot on to end up with the correct colour, halfords monkies won't give a s**t if they are abit out on each colour which will give the final result a bad match
