* Take the cards corresponding to the manufacturer's reference from the Colormaster system.
* Select the card that accurately matches the colour of the vehicle.
* Mix the R-M formula from the corresponding card.
By following the R-M technical data sheets to ensure the correct mixing ratio and application, you can be sure the colour will match the card and the vehicle, precisely. Colormaster gives you a perfect colour match.
