    Nautic Blue paint

    After a nice van driver smashed into my front bumper im in need of Nautic Blue pearl spray paint. Can anyone recommend a supplier please? Halfords are useless as ever. I have seen online, silly prices just for a touch up stick, like 20!!! The bumper has a good scrape on the end so i need a can or two of the normal size sprays.

    I know some make up paint to order and put it in 'refillable' pump up aerosol? ( has anyone seen these) basically fill with paint then it has an air bag inside you inflate with a foot pump. Or am i imagining that! ?? Lol

    But i do remember seeing something like this but have looked online and not found it.

    I had some paint for a Mondeo mixed at Halfords and it was a brilliant match. Cost about 16 a can though. It was put into an aerosol can but you could have it in a can if you wanted to use a spray gun or air brush. Not sure if they still do this as it was 4 years ago.

    No it is on a seperate plate. I think the manual claims it's under the bonnet but mine is locoted on the B pillar on the drivers side between the hinges for the rear passenger door. I found it easier to take a piccie with my phone and zoom in on it to read it.
