Quick question on paint colour codes
After looking at the plate under my bonnet (95 Clio RSi) I found out my paint code was 963 (according to Halfords this is Brookland Green).
So I purchased one of Halfords lovely paintwork touch up kits (the one with the fibreglass brush and the primer/paint/lacker combinations).
After atempting a touch up and letting everything dry it looks completely the wrong colour, slightly too dark.
On inspection of Halfords selection of Renault greens they do another green called Goodwood green with looks like it might be closer but the paint code doesnt match.
Anyone know anything about this? According to Halfords none of the clios were ever Goodwood green.
Could this be due to me applying too much paint? or the paint having faded over the years?
As you can imagine it looks a mess and Im not too happy
Any help appreciated
