Post DIY Paint
hey guys,

Summer is comming and Im planning on getting my car on the road soon. Im planning on painting it myself, because I cant afford to have it painted or have the body work done professionally. I was wondering where to get paint from, because I tried to get some off summit after I saw decent results on tv on Trucks on spike tv, but they wont ship it to Canada. :twisted:

Any ideas/recommendations?

Thanks

-James

Ideal Supply is where I get mine. Any color you like, just give them the paint codes. They have a couple of different product lines with different pricing. If you're doing BC/CC then you'll find that the clear & activator costs quite a bit more than the base.

I've used various guns and compressors. HVLP is best bet.

There is a place called Cawthra Automotive here in Mississauga that supplies paint....All they need is the paint code and they can get in in w/e format you want.

Ideal Supply is a NAPA affiliate so that may be why they have it. I know the mix some paints at the Shelburne store, stopped mixing in Orangeville but they can order it in mixed anyway.

I've used these guys before and they are excellent to deal with and match OEM paint to perfection. You need to send it to a depot (either USPS or UPS) in Buffalo or Niagara falls and pick it up and bring it over. Much cheaper that way.
