    Afternoon All,

    Had a little mishap with a overhanging roof which took the surface paint off front of awning:doh:.

    Anyone know the paint code (colour (polar!) white) of Fiamma F45 awning.

    thanks in advance.
    Steve

    I doubt that it is an automotive colour. Like most aluminium on our vehicles it's coated before being assembled - normally a type of powder coating.

    Thanks but it certainly looks like automotive paint.

    If you dont want to or cant spray the whole face consider using a white vinyl wrap after rubbing down, quite cheap of e-bay
    Good clean and prep ,hair dryer and a stanley blade
    two new decals (e-bay) good as new

    I think it is a plastic based paint.
    But I like the Decal idea by Geo (above).

    I used domestic white aerosol that I got from Wilco Motosave, stood out a little for a week or so.
    Mainly because I was looking, 12 moths later can't tell
