    Some Idiot damaged the rear and passenger side of my "CI-Carioca 656[55 reg].
    Actually the idiot was me..I forgot the overhang at rear and scraped the garden wall!!.
    I have managed to piece it together,[like a cracked egg shell]with good old super glue and also fill in and smooth down with filler.
    The problem now is painting the panel the right colour..the paint needs to be a special one[its a "fabric" like surface?]..but I am having difficulty with the "greyish/bluish colour.
    Does anyone know the colour of these "plastic" skirts on the vehicle sides..or the paint to use?
    I would be gratefully for any help or pointers in the right direction.:Blush::cry:

    Can't help on the paint, but did you really use superglue?

    If you did you may want to rethink as superglue wont work long term, it desolves in water/moisture etc.

    Just take the vehicle to a car paint suppliers and let them match it up with their colour charts. Your find them in the yellow pages or at yell dot com.
