Painting advice needed....

I want to paint an old GRP console grey from it's current orange colour.

I believe and I may be wrong that for best results I should use a two pack paint - however I am having trouble finding this in grey. International paints Perfection which is two pack comes in a colour called platinum but it is hard to tell from there colour chart if this is in fact grey or not.

International also have a product called Toplac which is a one pack product but is available in the correct colour - Atlantic Grey.

Can anyone advise
. Is there a supplier who can do two pack in grey.
. Is two pack paint the one to go for or is one pack i.e. Toplac OK

Try Hull GRP Supplies.

I used them a number of years ago and they were very helpful and reasonable.

I can't find them on google though.

I've done a console in Brightside, which like Toplac is an one pack paint from international. It was fine as long as it you give it time to harden off after painting.
