you could try going down to a few dealerships and get some charts from them. then you'll know what cars its from too.

The paintshop should have the colour charts. After all they are the ones that have to mix or order in the paint.

I got a bit nervous with mine, i had mine painted in the original red but i was worried it was going to come out orange or pink etc.

Once it's painted you wont want to drive it, when mine came out the paintshop it was raining constantly all week, i was worryed i was going to go out and find the paint had washed off or reacted.  :oops:

But everything came out fine.  8)

I'd be more inclined to go somewhere that has been around for a while and has some feedback... cars you can see and touch. There must be a bodyshop near you that has a good rep on the streets
to Big to Big, will find another soon!!!

Renault paint code 719 looks beautiful, especially when polished up.
