Re: paints

Go to the yellow pages and look up automotive paint suppliers. There should be a reseller in your area. If those colours were made on or before 2004 anyone should be able to sell them to you. (I use ProTec paints. Dunno if there avaliable all over australia though.)

AutoPro and Sprint/Motomate will sell you acrylic paints. I DONT recommend them however, as I resprayed my car and required 8 litres of paint. So I got 2 4 litre tins, and the tint was different in each of them

Re: paints

If your talking acrylic, paints pretty cheap, at least in my experience. Basic colours range from 40 to 100 bucks for 4 litres and then get more expensive for mixed colours and metallic etc. I reckon 130 to 200 bucks for 4 litres max, even 200 bucks sounds too much. I've sprayed in high opacity white and jet black, the cheapest of the colours and I paid next to nothing.

It depends on what kind of Car and how thick you want it.Also on wether you are doing the Door Jams and Engine Bay etc.
