Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

I'm getting closer to an idea of what colour I'd like...
Thanks, I've already found that info - there's also an ongoing thread on pre67 but I don't yet have a definitive answer...

LB3A - Thanks Mark, you know I love the colour of your '12 - I'll check that out as a back up plan.

Mixing formulations will all depend on what paint scheme it is being mixed on.

That makes sense. I believe it was originally a Glasurit formulation & I think I've got that from their website but I'd be keen to find out about other manufacturers.
