you may struggle to buy this off of a shelve but there are people out there who will mix paint in an aerosol spray but the do need a sample colour to work from

Take a small hatch off your van to use as a sample to a local firm who offer the service as described above.

 

Battery door? Our friendly coachbuilder did this for a friend and obtained a perfect match as a result.

Have you tried asking Lunar for a paint code - you may find it's a standard car colour in which case any motor paint supplier can mix it for you.

 

Colin and LHD - how accurate is mixing based on the colour - I guess you build into the mix that the paint is now almost 20 years old and will have faded over that time - can a perfect match be mixed? in which case that might be better than trying to get hold of the original colour . . ?

the best way to get an accurate paint match is to T-cut the whole side back to the original colour and get a paint match to suit that. hard work yes but the paint will then age at the same rate, if you apply new paint to the old faded colour then it will age different and you will end up having to T-cut the patch every year to make it fade away.

I suppose you need to decide how big an area you are going to touch up?

 

Is this here and there or a specific place?
