Thanks for the quick replies. I talked to a couple paint shops and they all could make up the correct colour quickly and easily. I guess that's what they do for a living eh?
I'm pretty sure this car doesn't have clearcoat. I'll double check before I buy the paint, but I think only the VW metalics and pearls had the clearcoat.

|adtkart||There are many different blacks. You would be best off to have some mixed for that paint code.|

blacks can be very different
and poncho, i think he was meening that the color coat is a single stage, not like a multystage like a flake, metallics or pearls ect...

|poncho62||I am positive that the 96 VW has Base coat/ Clear coat. You might as well get the proper black, as it won't match otherwise.|

Black is black?
Hello, I have recently acquired the task of fixing a friends front fender with minor body damage.
It is a 1996 volkswagen jetta with black paint code L041.
My question is all black the same? This is not metallic, with no pearl. Just single stage black. I am planning on using Nason brand paint to repaint the one fender. Will the standard black match up, or will they have to mix to match the code?
I know this isn't a hot rod, but I gotta help my friend out before I can get back to my real project cars. Thanks,
