Paint Supplier

Post by Andrew 2.8i » Sun Oct 20, 2019 8:07 am

Good Morning,
Does anybody know a supplier of automotive paint for use in a sprayer?
Preferably somewhere that is willing to post!

Andrew,
I`ve used these for years, https://www.colourtone.com/ because they`re local so I can call in the shop, (also do mail order)
Also used these https://www.carcolourservices.co.uk/ I don`t honestly remember why, but I got the *Smart car paint from them, there must have been a reason - but they were fine anyway.
Paints4U.com I`ve used for mixed aerosols and they`re really good quality, but I don`t know if they do mixes for a gun?

* that`s paint for a Smart car, not a `smart` paint repair material, if you know what I mean.

Thank you, my good man. That's just the sort of recommendation I'm looking for.
I've read positive reports of Paints4U, however, as far as I can tell they don't supply paint for a gun.

I bought some small touch up paints from a firm called Auto Paint Pro, tele Medway (01634) 291086, I don't know if they do sprayers though.

Thanks Tom,
When I've got a spare moment I'll look into it.

+1 for Colourtone. I have found them to be helpful too, in a no bull old school kind of way.

You're not being tempted to try 2K paint though are you? That stuff can be deadly.

Thanks for the recommendation.
No, I'm not going to use 2K paint as I don't have the appropriate equipment.
