Can anyone recommend a good mail order supplier for a colour mixed aerosol spray paint for the deck and cabin sides of a Vosper RAF crash tender.
I believe the correct colour should be BS 381C Light Grey 631 preferably in a satin or semi gloss finish.
Thanks. Robbob.

Hi Onetenor.
Thanks for the follow up suggestions but I have already found a supplier in Manchester who were able to mix the
required colour and deliver 2 x 400ml rattle cans by next day courier for £18 all in, which is a real bargain compared to the
prices I found elsewhere.
The only snag I that they can only mix gloss and not matt or satin, but I will overspray with a satin lacquer anyway.
I have tested it for compatibility with the acrylics that I am using (Halfords) and it's perfectly OK.
