Sorry to butt in to threads. I bought a39 paint for my gunmetal grey evo. I obvs allowed for aging over the years but the paint colour is very dark compared to original.
Anyone know of a place that colour matches inc Metallic paints as well as supplies as a spray?

Did you lacquer over it or is it just out the tin & most metallic paints have a
set coloured base coat so it can look totally different depending on this.

I got some paint for my m3 from the link below & it was bang on
It was silver which apparently is a pig to blend in but matched perfectly.

Yes I used laquer. Seems like it has 2 colours. One for inner and one for outer panels.
I'll check out the link, cheers!
