shop that makes you air spray paint?

hello

I saw a thread few weeks back saying that there is a shop near mississauga which makes you right color air spray paint.

How is the quality of that shop? Also is that easy to use and reuse?

I think your referring to Cawthra Automotive. (cawthra/lakeshore) area. They will custom match paint, or if you provide them with a paint code they will put it in an spray bomb can (aerosol). 20$ a can. I use them regularly. nothing is 100% perfect, but there are no other options...

yup thats them...

Not sure about how many ML in a can, its the same as like a can of primer...

They can also sell it in liquid in the event that you have a compressed air paint gun...

Awhile back I was looking for the same thing for another car & UAP/NAPA will also put paint into an aerosol. Don't know if they do german import colours or just domestic; but it couldn't hurt to give them a call & find out.

white is ultra hard to match

I got my paint from cawarthra to do my greys, at first, the paint was too bright, now (a year later), the colour seems to match well, but i'm a little concerned that it only took 1 year for the paint to match with a 12 year old finish.
