Trem , the paint code is 3 letters but you discount the last letter on the 4 letter code on the plate (if that makes sense lol) ie EZWD = D denotes pearlescent lacquer EZW is code

I put the link up so the guy can at least see what it should be. So if its silver he should see EYC on his sticker etc

Now im confused hahahaha

I've always been under the impression mine was called Moonstone (as per the link posted above), yet when looking on service box, the same paint code EYL is called Iceland Grey :confused:
Has anyone got an Iceland Grey, 'cos mine don't look like it :D

That's same colour as mine which I think halfords list as moonstone blue. Halfords touch kit doesn't match it though..slightly too dark.

Scratch Repair Kit

Hello,
There are few scratches on my car, like this one:

My paint code is EZWD**, could someone recommend a good SCRATCH REPAIR KIT for this colour? Thanks!

I have a few scratches and used rubbing compound with microfibre cloth and some went away. If the scratch goes deeper than the compound will cope with try a trip to a vehicle paint supplier who will match your paint with paint code, check colour fobs against your car paint and supply a method of application, either touch up bottle with a brush or aerosol. Body shop wanted to respray the panel for £500. The miracle scratch repair kits performance i found disappointing and didn't match up to their cost.

The halfords kits are pretty dire tbh - I spend time at least a couple of times a week doing paint for a customer who's already bought the halfords one and weren't happy. The biggest problem with all of these touch up kits is a really simple one - when the paint gets pushed thru an air-powered spraygun, the air pressure brightens the paint by making it layer more smoothly - so while you only put one coat on at a time, the effect of the air is that its dusting over and over again - 9 times out of 10, especially with metallic or pearl colours, the touchups look too dark because of this lack of layering when you brush a "splodge" on at once. You're probably better off with abrasive coloured polishes than trying paint based touch up kits if you want it to look better.

At the same time, take the above with a pinch of salt - I mix car paint for bodyshop use and the demand for a very good match means something I consider a poor match would probably be accepted by a lot of people as "good enough".

Personally, I'd never use a touch up kit, but I have access to bodyshops, friends in the trade, and a pile of air powered tools and painting gear at home so I'm a LONG way from impartial.

Noticed a few scratches in the rare sunlight yesterday which got me thinking Trem. The abrasive colour polish mentioned sounds like my route. Once you start getting new paint onto old you need to be good to hide it. Not like fully spraying a panel. I like the polish option but can it be made to a paint code like paint is? What do you say Colin? I have tried cutting paste in the past which has been ok on some scratches but others need something better.
