I'm sorry Elie but the 59L you mention in your latest posting is not the one Paints4U are talking about. If you enter 59L in their search you do indeed come up with Jamaica Yellow along with various other colours, it's all very confusing I know but if you order 59L Cargo Yellow that is what you'll get which is the equivilant to the 51U Cargo Yellow that you mention. As I say it's all very confusing and Louise the girl I spoke to, and who is very knowledgebly about paints and even application did explain it all.

I got some Cargo Yellow from Paints4U last week. Great service - the only quibble is the paint is a touch thin, so for chip touch up it needs a double of coats/ dabs which makes a neat job tricky.

Pete-B, i know there are different colors on the same code, but at Sikkens i have only 1 Cargo Yellow, i get the Jamaica Yellow and some metallic color on 59L but the most importent is that you got the right color in the can. TomB, if your repair is a bit thick you could sand it down with 1500 grade, then 2000 grade and then machine polisch the repaired area for a better finish. Stephen, it's 2 pack, you will need a hardener, i may be dry after some time but it will never be properly set

Got my 59L Cargo Yellow today from Paints4U and it's a pretty good match, bear in mind my car is nearly four years old, but I'm very pleased!

Elie, Quote: if your repair is a bit thick you could sand it down with 1500 grade, then 2000 grade and then machine polisch the repaired area for a better finish. The previous owner has done some touch up on the nose cone.... they are too thick... would your above advice be still applicable if the touch up is few months/years old..... I don't have machine polish, any alternativeS? Thanks

Glasgow, yes once the paint is set properly you can sand it down regardless of age. without machine the result will be less good and will need a lot of elbow grease.

Bit of a holy thread resurrection!! 
 

I've found out what the paint smell is in my garage cupboard - my halfords mixed Daewoo LYO lima yellow has dried out and resembles a yellow rubber block!

Going to see if Halfords can mix me some Vauxhall 59L Cargo Yellow as the Daewoo was not a perfect match.

Ian - let us know how you get on. I could do with some yellow spray paint for the 7 in the grill.

I got a pot of touch up paint from here. They needed the original manufacturer's paint code, 'Caterham Riviera Blue' prompted a confused email! But the colour match was very good indeed.
