Anyone know of a decent NZ seller of automotive touch-up paints?

 

Preferably the nail polish type brush on ones.

 

Alternatively do you know how much it will cost from a car painter to make a couple pots up?

I got mine from Spraystore, part of the SmitsGroup - https://smitsgroup.co.nz/

 

Go to the contact page to see if they have a location near you. They may even do phone orders but I am not sure.

 

I got a touch up pot with brush for my previous Ford Ranger with next to no effort. I can't remember what it cost, so that means it was reasonable LOL.

 

Most panel beaters should also be able to supply touch up paint, although they likely won't have your exact colour in stock, so may possibly charge a premium just to get it in for you.

I went to a store in Petone that made any color you liked, by code. I could possibly work out where it was if I really had to.

 

Spray container cost something like $10 - $15, with clear coat about the same. Fixed the wing mirror easy. Might do the bonnet one day. It's very very messy.

I've seen them at either Repco or Super Cheap before. Guessing they would only have popular colours. Otherwise try the dealership or a panel beater.

Union Hardware, Newtown, Wellywood (Yes, they are still in business, but moving next year).

 

 

 

Supercheap Auto here in Oz do it, not sure in NZ... Check their website.

I have always just gone down to my local panel beater with the paint code and they have made it up pretty quickly and cheaply.
