Apologies for asking the same bloody question again. I believe someone has said it closely resembles Halfords Astro Silver. Those that have done this, did you prime the top part surrounding the MFD prior to spraying or did you just spray without? Any help will be appreciated.

He only sprayed the top cover over the MFD. All the other sections already come silver like that in the sxi corsa c!

When i got a new stereo in my car i had to use an adaptor to make it fit. When i asked what colour to spray it i was told the closest match was Vauxhall smoke silver metalic. Never did get around to spraying it so not sure if it was a good match.

if u have an aftermarket stereor with a facia adaptor, the easiest thing to do is just spray all of the center,that way it will all match

was thinking of doing somet with the hazard switch myself. was thinking of maybe painting silver to match dash or gloss black to match vents and do all vents in gloss black? and then put a seperate LED in for the alarm and add a small irmscher sticker above on the hazard switch? what do you think? wanted to paint he dash bit above the speedo silver but it ain't a 100% match so might look cheap, but might look good gloss black? its a silver c so what do you reckon?
