    Hi all I'm looking to order a replacement lower panel for my white upvc front door.

    But apparently there's loads of different types of white?

    Are any of these numbers stamped into the door frame the colour code?

    There are more numbers stamped around but this is the only photo I've taken so far.

    Hard to say, Idealy a manufacturer of the actual ' profile ' would be easier , but even saying that there is never a guarantee they will ever match 100% due to the age of the original door. I have at least 15 samples of different shades of white, and I still can't tell the difference all the time!

    It is an old door yeah, I've just replaced the dodgy handle, flapping letterbox, and cheap numbers.
    This panel is all that's left to do. A local double glazing place has quoted £60 for a replacement panel and they will cut it to size and colour match the white.

    But looking online, as always, it's half the price!
    Here's one for example (will keep looking though)...
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120673481645?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

    The current panel I have is metal, so it doesn't 100% match the white of the plastic door anyway.

    Maybe I should just buy one online and deal with it being a slightly different white as it's impossible to match 100% anyway?
