Paint match

Hello there friends, looking for some advice please.

I've a 147 2004 paint code Vr680 grigio metallico (code taken from boot). I've tried to get a touch up pen online and at Halfrauds neither of which seem to be a great match. I'm in the market for a rattle can (small rust spot on rear arch) and wondered if any of you nice folk knew of someone who could supply one that was an accurate colour match?

Thanks in advance

Not the cheapest thing pal but the colour matches well if you apply the laquer coat afterwards. Make sure you have a steady hand too.

Metallic is really hard to match with cans, because the pressure in the can is not enough to atomise the paint like a gun would.

If you find a can your happy with, take your time and apply the paint in many thin layers. Again when silver is applied in bulk it can appear darker. also give yourself room to blend the repair, i.e at least 6-12 inches either side of the colour application.
