Yeah I've heard that too, extremely difficult to just paint 1 panelI've heard this is the most difficult colour to blend in. Once saw a GTV that had an Aero spoiler fitted and the paint shop had 3 goes at painting it and it still was miles out I'm told its all to do with what colour you paint the primer first, i think with this colour its a sort of white ( if this makes any sence lol )
it still won't match due to UV fade, which is why paint is mixed to match a fuel flap or similar but with these pearls it's just not possible to get it 100% right. We've just had 3 attempts to match Victoria Blue....all cr*p & I'm not prepared to repaint the whole car for a couple of small blemishes!The problem is that all of the mixed paints that suppliers now offer, do not match the original. I am really looking for any original Alfa paint that is lying around... there must be a few tins left in the world somewhere!
Sorry, I'd forgotten that you were repainting.I am having the whole car totally re-sprayed, the car has been stripped, I dont have to match the colour, just replicate it to when I bought it new 12 years ago !
What's the difference between 414-b and 414-a ? mine is 414-aHi, I have a 2000 GTV lusso in a Pearlescent or Iridescent blue/gold/green! paint code 414-b.
The car is in for a complete re-spray and I have been todl that the paint is no longer obtainable. Does anyone know where this product may be available from?
