Cheers all for the advice and help....

the guy who is doing the spraying sent me down a spray card tester..... Its battleship grey, no way pearl white!

Thankfully the place I bought it off, accept it was there mistake ( after some hesitations of course ) and agreed to do another lot. They said they made it exactly how the paint code suggested and couldnt work out why it come out this colour. Although I have kind of lost faith in them now, but hope the new lot is more like what I should have had originally. !!! Anyone else had this problem with a paint shop?

Resto been going to smooth, so was bound to have a hidcup sooner or later!!
