Little tip cut some card board and colour it black cut 2 squares out just a little smaller than the spray out cards a couple of inches apart from each other.

Place one of your spray outs behind the left window you have made and put it against your car and have a go checking the spray outs thst way against your car i personally use this method myself.

Interestingly, using that method the Spiers card matches closest!

Woohoo, I have a date for it going in for the last time for the first time! Their chief painter is going to be doing it, and the Spies is the colour we're going with. It'll be nice to have it back in the correct colour as I much prefer my original shade over the normal EBII! They're also going to sort the knock at the front while they have it, and arrange for the service to be done FOC once it's due in a few k miles which I'm more than happy with as an apology given a) my paint seems to be a ******* and b) nobody has died and aside from a few short journeys out to the bodyshop it's not been a major inconvenience (albeit them originally handing the interior back looking black was pretty crap).

That is good news and good on them for persevering to sort this out...

Looking forward to seeing the finished car

You and me both! I actually can't fault the way their director has gone about dealing with this for me, so credit to them for stepping up and working out what the issue was. Sure, it's taken six months but I've been in no rush and was happier getting to the point where we agreed on the colour and then could get their best painter on it (who does the £100k+ Pagoda restorations etc).

Yup! They're going to have it for 8 or 9 days to get everything done with no rush, and get the knocking sorted too, so hopefully in a few weeks I'll get it back and then can deal with sorting all the paint and trim out. Strangely though even seeing the mismatch hasn't really bothered me much since knowing it would be sorted so it hasn't actually been a detriment to me enjoying waxing it and keeping it looking good.

I'll also not have to deal with a Micro courtesy car this time as they're sorting me out with something proper. No idea what, but it'll be an estate of some sort.

I dropped it off yesterday so we'll soon see...maybe. I suspect it'll be after next weekend given they're doing a few warranty bits and fixing some other paintwork gratis too (I seriously can't complain with how they're dealing with this now!).
