Hi all
I really do have to tell you all about this I happened to have scored a new bumper from the dealer at a cost of a carton of Corona but it was silver and I needed it to be a grey colour
so off in to Supercheap to see if I can buy an aerosol spray but the girl said bring me your paint code and we can mix it I was a bit sceptical about the match up but I have to say I am impressed with this product so I get two cans and go home and clean the bumper free of dust no primer required and I start painting two coats later and its done and its a perfect match so ok lets really test it I had some rust spots on the roof of the Paj so I gave them a light wet & dry sanding and sprayed them with the aerosol can and what a surprise you would not pick it other than the clear coat which I will do later so I can highly recommend this paint service from Supercheap
Cheers
Georgie

Was it Rockingham or Mandurah SCA that mixed it for you?

As the owner of an automotive paint repair business I love people who do this.

When they realise what a mess the spray cans have made they come to me to get it fixed, properly.

Georgie, I realise that your intentions were good but this wasn't the solution in either the case of the bar, or your roof. You, and people like you are not to blame, really - just trying to save a buck. But the people who make and sell these products without imparting the knowledge on limitations, proper use and application are just thieves. What did they charge you? $65 for two cans of basecoat?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but what you've done simply won't work or last and will look terrible. Ultimately the only solution will be to strip off what you've applied and respray the whole panel(s).

Honestly, I urge members not to do this.

This is the kind of thing I see, quite often. This guy started off to fix a few small stone chips....

Before


$1500 later (because he did more at the rear)

Do you need to strip it back, or can it be sprayed over. I ask because I have done this to a plastic spoiler on my son's car....and I'm about to get it sprayed again properly. yes...I used the super cheap stuff

m & m, that depends. If the prep work wasn't done then everything above that has to come off until you get to a sound layer or plastic/metal, whichever comes first. Sometimes we can just sand it back, other times it's case of strip to substrate.

Thanks for that ... you just helped me with my decision to do a respray on our Honda Civic Typre R - as clear coat has gone off on the roof

There have been a few of these systems over the years. They all depend heavily on proper preparation to get the product to stick in the chips and, in the ones that use a thinner to remove excess, very careful application to ensure that you don't pull the product out of the chips. As a short term solution to reduce visibility of the chips they can be quite effective, especially on dark colours, so second hand car dealers love stuff like this because it can save them a lot of money against resprays.

They're not a permanent fix and some last better than others which may need periodic re-application and, if polished, use of a polish that is either coloured or shaded to match the paint so that the polish that gets caught in the chips doesn't dry to a contrasting colour e.g. white polish on a black car.

I have used these matched spray cans but I got mine from a paint shop in Fyshwick. They also used some sort of device to determine the level of paint fade. Even having done this, you can see the difference. I used it for a few touch ups.

I also agree that nothing matches the fully prepared & professional paint job that only body shops can give. But of course it also comes down to cost.
