Hi Guys

I have a 55 plate Mondeo in Stardust silver that needs a dent in the door repaired. I have all the equipment but its been a long time (30 years) since I sprayed a car.

What type of paint should I be buying to repair the door, 1k, 2k, Acrylic, Synthetic, cellulose or something else. Halfrauds paint guy said cellulose would be fine. but then he would say that as thats all they sell.

I have no access to an oven if that makes any difference to the choice.

Thanks for any input on this.

Hey.. I see you posted this a while ago, but maybe you'll see this anyways..

This is one of my favourite websites at the moment. I've not bought anything from them yet, but they're website is super helpful.. anyways, they seem to have a good selection of paints and help you find the paint code for your car. This could be completely wrong, I'm no expert and all those different types of paint went straight over my head :unsure: Maybe your car's paint code will help you out there?

Anyways, here's the link for the website:


Just click on the right tab, push in what car you have and model number and it'll show you were to find your code (if you dont already know), put that in and it'll bring up the right paint(s) for you.

I really hope this helps..
