Anyone know where I can get a matching tin off the shelf of black spray paint. Needs to match my 2011 gts 300 super.

I've tried getting colours matched at halfords without much success in the past.

What is The black called?

Not in the UK, but the black on my '09 GTS Super is called "shiny black", nero lucido in Italian.

I've never had problems getting paint made up at Halfords. As long as you have the colour code, and get then to look under both Piaggio and Vespa, they can match it up.

+ 1 - my local autoparts dealer has matched me two lots of Vespa paint from a Piaggio paint book under the counter (but maybe I just got lucky on this one )

Black (and white) can be very difficult to match. Especially if the original has faded a bit.


(I wasn't sure if you meant owners of black GTS's or ...)
