    Rapido have confirmed the paint colour on my 2009 a class is ral 9016
    Having searched the Web this appears to also be called traffic white.
    However comes in gloss Matt or satin.

    Anyone know what to use
    Want to touch up the wing mirrors and all respray the blindspot mirrors I put purchased.

    Also have a small crack in the rear bumper which will need sorting at somepoint. Feck knows how it happened grrr. Never mind...

    Not sure if same finish all round but cannot see a reason why not. I originally asked rapido about wing mirrors.

    The ral number is a standard for colour identification as any one can call a colour what they like but if selling as a Ral Colour it must meet the colour standard
    so to say its also called traffic white is not strictly true If Rapidohave said its Ral 9016 then it must state that on the tin regardless of what its called
    my only concern is what paint you are researching???? vehicle colours are not usually offered in a range of finishes they can be made that way but rarely sold that way
    You seem to be describing a DIY decorating finish if so that wont be at all suitable for a vehicle
    Correct choice of material is crucial get it wrong and it will get expensive

    Rapido did not call it a name I found name on google. They only gave me ral 9016.

    I searched for ral 9016 spray paint and got several finishes. Just about all the sites I have visited offer the different finishes.

    Yes I understand but your giving no clue as to the material that's in the spray cans
    Automotive paint is a high gloss finish a metallic finish Base coat and clear finish etc
    Note no mention of gloss mat or satin
    The ral numbers will work throughout all types of paint Inc emulsion
    Are you talking/ wanting cellulose.acrylic oil based.water based. synthetic ????

    I just did a Google search on ral 9016 spray paint and all sites came up with the 3 finishes which confused the hell out of me just need some paint to respray wing mirrors and blindspot mirrors.
    I assumed just the one finish. Like u say maybe I need to just go to halfords or a autobodyshop place to ensure get correct paint.
    Surely some one on her has bought spray paint ie aerosols before.? Anyone recommend a place to shop?
