I don't think anywhere will mix paint like car paint since they don't use pearl for house paint..

Try calling a few of the automotive paint or body shop supply
places. Most of the ones I've been to in town (Ottawa) will do it
for about $20 a can.

I get my paint from PPG, that's where I got my 51E (Pure/Aspen White) for my grill

It's on Bridgeport road... in Richmond...

It's like $22 with tax...

It actually closer to Shell and Bridgeport...

If you come FROM vancouver off the Hwy, go towards Shell, it'll be on your right, it's next to an auto parts store... it's just a tiny store so look for the PPG sign, I'm pretty sure it's blue in color

Took me like 10 minutes to find it at 1st... but I'm sure you'll get it no problem...

WHAT are you painting ? Do you know how lethal automotive spray paint is ?!!! It's about as carthenogenic (sp ?) as playing with mercury or lead !!! You inhale about a minute of it, and you can go into cardiac arrest, collapse, and die !! You should read the WHMS labels for the paint and it's components. You HAVE to use an approved respirator or else you face very very scary consequences.

When you mix automotive paint, you have base paint, which consists of pigments, fillers and stuff, but it's the hardender or accellerator that will kill you.

You do NOT play with this kind of paint vs spray paint you buy off the shelf.

If you are intending to put it into a small sprayer (the kind with the glass jar, and it's own propellant), you will NOT get the same gloss you achieve with a commercial spray gun. You need air pressure around 25-40 psi on a proper gravity feed or suction gun to achieve gloss.

Not sure what you are intending to paint, but for what it's worth, take it to a shop, and have them blend up the colour in-house, and spray it. PLUS, you need to make sure you have the parts completely dust free, cleaned ultra clean with tumbler, properly scuffed, and proper type of primer layed down first...with adhesion promotors and or flex agent for plastic or rubber parts.

ps...I don't work in a shop, but have sprayed probably 4-5 complete cars in the past 5 years, so I'm around bodyshops a lot.

oh...i didn't know Kingsway Lordco has that now...

i heard last time some guy asked and they said no but that was quite a couple months back!?

Main and 2nd has the most ****ty customer service i have ever had....i will never go shop there again and wish they will close down soon....haha...ooops....

last time i was there checking out some parts (i was around the area and i was thinking if they can give me the same deal then i don't have to stop by those i used to go)....

they just told me to look it up myself on the shelf! tell them the part # or sth and they will see what they can do....and guess what?! w/ my account at Lordco there wasn't much discount!!!

Devo: i am not sure if my account will help u to get discount but let me know....we just painted a Silver Spoiler and bumper and going to paint a silver one later yet we don't make any paint in CAN though....

Don: thanks for the heads up, never knew that
but if it's so dangerous.. is it really feasible for the stores to do it ? even though there are warnings and all, but wouldn't there be a policy regarding the accessibility of these materials to the general public (untrained people)


Eric: ahh, pmed you

I've heard that new regulations are up and it can't be high pressure anymore due to the amount of over spray it causes.. I new one are low pressure high volume (LPHV). Yea paint are very dangerous, that is why it is regulated very heavily.
