Halfords Vauxhall 'Nautilus' car spray paint
The Halfords Vauxhall 'Nautilus' car spray paint is an exact match for the Vauxhall codes: 14L, 14U, 283.
It provides a tough, durable protective finish on metal, glass fibre or rigid plastic panels and the advanced acrylic based formulation, which is compatible with virtually all types of automotive paint finishes, including cellulose.
Preparation is always the key to a successful project, take your time to clean, treat any rust, rub down and mask the area. You will need to purchase a grey primer and apply at least two coats of the primer to ensure optimum adhesion and to give the best finish.
When you are ready to apply the paint, build up the colour with several thin coats, rubbing down with wet and dry sandpaper in between coats to ensure a professional finish. For metallic and pearlescent colours it is essential to purchase a lacquer, which will give a high gloss finish to solid colours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.Rated 4 out of 5 by Cranky16 OK, cheap but disappointing First the good. Halfords ordered 3 tins of this colour for me and it arrived quickly and was a good colour match to my old Astra Estate whose roof and bonnet had suffered 19yrs in the sun! It was cheaper, per litre, than my local dedicated auto paint aerosol provider BUT their paint was more viscous, had a nice fan nozzle and built better. The Halfords aerosol paint was very thin and accordingly has to be built up using very light coats to avoid runs. Basically it's OK for SMALL jobs on a car or model but not ideal for the areas I had to do. I'm not sure that anyone will read this as it's a colour which probably isn't in use any more!! :) Halfords should just have a single review area for ALL the colours. It doesn't make much sense to have reviews for individual colours as they all come out of the same factory.... I should think. 22 October 20161-1 of 1
