OEM paint touch ups

Post by Pauly »

Yo gents

Can someone please help me with recommendations. I have this dent on the side of my car and will be in the process of repairing it soon, but my problem is getting the proper paint to match my car.

I have located the paint code for my VW citi 1.4i but does anyone know of any good paint mixers?Brands? or does anyone have stock of touch up kits? The dent isn't that big so I won't be needing that much paint, I'll use the leftovers for small touchups.

My paint code is LB9A/B4.

Thank you in advance :thumbup:

A respray hardly ever matches 100% obviously taking onto account age of paint current condition of paint it will be a hassle to get it to match

B4B4 is Candy white so you might get 97% match but you will see a slight difference. Any reputable VW Approved panel beater will be able to match as close as possible.

Thats true though, I get that it won't be exactly 100% the same and it's something I'll have to live with.

Thanks for the help I appreciate it.
