Default Painting of the chassis and diasappointment

Well as the title suggests I finally got the stage where I was ready to paint my chassis, wishbones and uprights.
So with everything prepped and ready I went into work where I had been given the ok to paint everything, rather than in my cold damp garage.
Spray guns at the ready, compressor ramped up and pressures set, time to open the lovely WHITE rustbusters 121 chassis paint.
Open it up and what do I find, BLACK rustbusters 121, my chin hit the ground.
So those of you that know me, and i have told you my chassis is going to be white, it is a slightly dark shade of WHITE, in fact it is bl**dy BLACK.
In case you can't tell I'm not impressed.
The 121 paint comes with a colour sticker on the lid and with it being well sealed I didn't open it and as it had no sticker and a white lid I wrongly assumed they had not bothered with a sticker as the lid was white.
Moral of the story is double check every thing and assume nothing.
Oh and yes my chassis is bl**dy black like most of the others.
