UK Paint Choices

Hi All,

I thought I'd post some ideas for paints to use or R2. I'm going to go for a classic colour set here and ideally sticking to one brand of paint.

I'm sure I'll need more but would be good to hear your thoughts....

Simple - For all the blue bits!
Hycote Citroen Poseidon Blue Metallic Touch Up Aerosol, 150ml
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B009...AE8D&psc=1

I'm thinking as a clear coat (I'm assuming this is really needed to protect the last layer of paint but I'm not sure if this will give a matt finish or gloss.
Hycote Clear Lacquer, 400ml, Energy Class A [Energy Class A]
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004...LLHH&psc=1

For all the white parts to provide a clean matt finish.
Hycote Matt White Paint , 400ml
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B016...P7VL&psc=1

Now I'm really not sure about this one for the dome...
Hycote Rover Silver Leaf Metallic Touch Up Aerosol, 150ml
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hycote-Rover-Si...dpSrc=srch

For any black bits (Not quite chosen between Matt or Gloss yet but I suspect I'll use for the)
Hycote Gloss Black , 400ml

Hycote Matt Black , 400ml

No idea what colours the hoses are! Help! Smile

I'm in the same boat in regards to trying to start picking out colors but I'm on the other side of the pond. We don't have Hycote here. I need to find a reference to cross match.
