    Any recommendations for suppliers of paint in Series Land Rover colours.

    I'm looking at £36.45 for 1 litre of Bronze Green from paintman.co.uk (inc. VAT and delivery)

    Is this about right?

    Depends what sort of paint. Paintman ain’t bad for enamel.

    I paid £44.99 for 5 litres of satin Bronze Green from paints4trade on eBay. Maybe I'm a bit tight but it seems OK to me.

    I think paintman is very good at colour matching. HMG from paddocks is a good paint and a fair representation of original colour. Most are a generic colour match but can be slightly off if your after true matching. Not that you can tell unless at a show next to an original.

    I bought some Stratos Blue (not Blue Stratos - that's something completely different!) for my wife's 90 from paintman a few years ago, I agree great match and good application but more expensive than the stuff from Paddocks. (paintman does a wider variety of colours and more modern ones too)

    I got my.paint from Smith and Allen. I think I paid that for 5 Litres. Can recommend them. Good customer service.
