    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT It compeltely ruined the paint work. I should have read the comments before purchasing it. It is the worst lacquer I have ever used. I want a refund for this item !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better After trying the three stick system to touch-up my car and having a poor result, with the size of the brush type touch-up, I opted for the spray can and achieved a much more acceptable result. I know I had to tackle the whole panel but the end result was far superior to what I was able to achieve with the three pen system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted I bought this to use through an air brush. I had a repair that was too big for regular touch up methods and not big enough to justify respraying the whole panel. The paint is metallic silver so not the easiest to match! I decanted a small amount into a jar and after an hour or so to let it de-gas I was able to use it in the air brush without any further thinning. Needed to wet sand and buff to get the finish but it worked great and a lot better value than buying the small bottles of clear lacquer online.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not fit for purpose - avoid. Not surprised by the bad reviews on here. The poor level of gloss despite using 1 & a half cans (4-5 coats) of the stuff on a Honda Jazz bumper with metallic base paint. Even wet sanding and rubbing compound failed to bring any acceptable level of gloss. Not sure how Halfords gets away with selling stuff like this. Avoid.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready For Sale Touch up required on our Peugeot 307 XSI, so a can of Aluminium paint also purchased as well as the lacquer.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality product with poor coverage Very poor quality product. Very difficult to apply - it comes out as dots rather than as a fine spray, so you end up having apply absolutely tons of this stuff to get even a basic clearcoat. A good finish is unnecessarily difficult to achieve and it's poor value for money as you have to use absolutely loads of it. Get the Halfords Bodyshop Lacquer itself - it works much better.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Buy The Bodyshop lacquer instead Like many users I struggled to get the finish I was looking for with this product. Yes if you want to put in the effort with the wet and dry and use double the amount of lacquer you might ordinarily use. I have had various cans at different times and I have found the pressure to be a bit low - finish hit or miss and nozzle pattern unforgiving. I would suggest stretching the extra couple of quid for the Halfords 'Bodyshop' range lacquer which I have found to give a much better finish, better spray nozzle/pattern, don't need to use as much to get a better finish and gives a deeper 'clear coat' effect on metallics even straight off the. An. I found the depth of shine even with wet sanding and a good compounding with this product was not to the same standard as their Bodyshop range. For the sake of an extra couple of quid - time and effort saved is a no brainier for me - upgrade to the 'Bodyshop' range if you have struggled with this.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor and Variable quality. I have a decent amount of experience in paint finishing and have been repainting the roof and bonnet of an old Astra Estate. The quality of this lacquer is VERY variable and I think that this accounts for the varying results I and others have had and which are expressed in these reviews The problem lies in the poor quality control of the nozzle dimensions. The first two cans I had were excellent and gave an instant finish. However the second batch of cans had a VERY narrow active 'wet' spray cone of only around 30-40mm diameter and the outer ring was more 'dusty'. This is going to put me to a LOT of extra work which is REALLY irritating. I would suggest purchasing a 'proper' car aerosol from a dedicated car paint retailer even though more expensive. They have a better 'fan' spray nozzle and their base paints are also slightly more viscous and less runny, with better 'build'. Steer clear of Halfords aerosols as, in my experience, it's like Russian Roulette! Inconsistent results!
