Paint for wing mirror

Unread post by pdig »

Hello and thank you for reading this message.

Our car is a 2012 reg C3 Picasso. The wing mirror was hit and damaged, so I bought a new one (heated and electric). The new mirror is primed in black. Which black gloss spray paint would be suitable for the wing mirror please?

Thank you!

I would have thought that any touch up spray cans would, the single pack stuff is generally acrylic, smells like cellulose but gives an excellent finish. I sprayed a wing and front panel on an XM with it and it looked fine.

You can get the matching colour from the dealer using the paint code. they usually come as two cans wrapped together, base coat and lacquer. cost about £9 last time I bought one.
