hi all my civic is galaxy grey NH701M and I have been touching up various bits of body work with colour matched aerosols, to be fair for a rattle can the finish once wet flatted and polished is very good way better than I thought it would be, the problem I'm having is the colour is too grey rather than the goldie grey it should be, its not far off but enough to notice, I have tried 3 suppliers so far with pretty much the same result, and yes I know rattle cans aren't the best for colour match but if I could get the right shade the finish will look very good
my neighbour has suggested I may be using the wrong colour primer (grey) does anybody have any input about this, or indeed know the correct colour primer?
maybe white?

Got any stone chips on original paint where you can see the primer colour?
Plenty of stone chips mate..I'll go have a look tomorrow
i've had a proper look on the can and it does say to use dark grey primer, I used regular grey primer...I wonder if there is a difference
