i bought some paint to give my grille a quick spray before I properly sprayed it and its come out like this...... http://images7.fotki.com/v143/free/b9dd0/1/142251/1689957/DSC00033-vi.jpg and http://images8.fotki.com/v145/free/b9dd0/1/142251/1689957/DSC00034

the flash makes the grille look brighter than it is but it should be flame red but its more maroon this is the car.... http://images8.fotki.com/v137/free/b9dd0/1/142251/1689957/DSC00010-vi.jpg which is flame red and that m3 mirror in the pic is off the car and the colour matched the car. should i take the paint back to halfords cause it just doesnt seem to be flame red, what you think?

if none of the pics loads this should work, http://public.fotki.com/DougSRi/nova_20_16v/ its the last two pics

should have went to the desk and asked them to check if there is more than one shade, and if so get the paint code for your car then match it to the code on their computer and they can make the paint for you in the right shade, this is only if theres more than one shade of the paint tho...
