hi so im wondering where the best place to buy spray paint online is. i know most people will say just go to the store and ask if im under 18. yes i am under 18 but my parents go to home depot with me and buy it anyways. ive been to home depot/lowes/some auto store and i cant find the colors i really want

white acrylic enamel primer
white gloss acrylic enamel
white Alkyd Enamel plastic primer
purple gloss acrylic enamel

this is why i want to purchase online aside from the fact that if the company accepts paypal, i have alot of money on there. the store HAS to have all 4 of these paints

Do you know the brand of paint or just looking for those colors? I would see if duplicote has them if they do you can goto your local automotive store and they should be able to order it to the store.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead.

i might use an automotive website. the paint is expensive but it should be high quality right? i can color match the white to the bmw 3series or infinit g37 as they are VERY white. purple will be a toss up. i guess i could grab it at home depot?(not the exact color i wanted tho)

You COULD use automotive paints, but be warned, it is VERY involved. They do create a great finish and are much more durable than rattle can paints.

You have to spray the paint for the best results so you'll need a compressor and the stuff to go with it as well as a spray gun. If you have these you're set.

As for the paint, you'll need a primer, color, reducer, clear and hardener. This site has a quick little explanation on how to paint using automotive paints. http://store.planetcolor.com/

You can usually buy automotive paints online, but just be careful cuz they are horrible for your lungs/brain more so than spray paints. So get a PAINT respirator and save some of your brain cells.

i was talking about actual spray paint cans with car paint in it. they color match it to any car which is pretty good because im only worried about messing up the white. the purple will be on the mesh which isnt hard to paint
