i need to paint the door on my GTI but dont have the money or the time to leave it at a paint place. i know i what i need to do to paint it, im just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for paint to use to match tornado red?
Get the car's paint code and bring it to your local automotive supply store that deals with refinishing. Have em match it, but you will need to blen into the fender and the rear quarter or the door will not match. Red is a tough color to match; chances are the new paint will be too light (more white) or darker (more black).
Go base/clear and just shoot the whole door and half the fender/quarter with color. Then clear the side and it'll be as good as new.......of course, then you may need to buff and/or wax the rest of the car to match the new shine!
Good luck http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
