I'd start by calling Surface & Design on Bristol Avenue. Sure they'll send you some smile
Would be interested to hear what the different quotes you've had are.
What are you painting ?

Hi
Try the Colour match centre in High Wycombe 01494 446 580 and say JGH Detailing sent you as they mix a lot of unusual colours for me.

I don't think you'll need 2 litres just to paint a grill.

I'd also suggest you do contact S&D and see if they can match your car as Reflex paint isn't just a matter of ordering a part number as it's mixed as a special and batches vary.

You will only need a small amount of paint as said but most places will not mix less than 250ml

yes I know this as fact as the factory cocked up a warranty repair on my 6 month old T350. Rear quarter came back a different shade that was very noticeable, all sorts of excuses followed but eventually got it right.

If you have some spare, I will need to paint a new door mirror (don't ask!)

Yes it can be blown in/blended like any other standard basecoat.
