After a falling out with my insurance repair people, long story. I want to paint the tailgate door handle and numberplate light cover and a few other bits Natural Grey colour code LH7W I think is the code.
Where is the best place to get the paint for the job, VW/Halford/TPS?
Also want to do some stone chips so VW touchup pens any good?

I just got some on e-bay which was spot on, as long as you've got the code I think anywhere should be fine.. just get a rattle can and a decent very small pointy paint brush for touch ups (just spray some into the cap)

Go to a car paint specialist.when I rattle canned my door rails the code paint did not match the actual paint on the van.I took the van to a specialist who made it up, after a couple of test mixes he got it spot on. Charged me £14 (I think) I only had one can made up which in hindsight was a mistake,should have got a few.
