Always perform a spray out or color test before painting your vehicle. This cannot be overemphasized. The Auto Paint Depot is not responsible for paint that has been applied to a vehicle that does not match. We will gladly assist in resolving paint related issues before the paint is applied to the actual piece being refinished.

Please note that we only accept returns on wrong orders made by The Auto Paint Depot for 30 days from the date of purchase. Please check your order for color match and completeness upon receiving. We are unable to provide refunds/exchange on pre-1985 vehicle colors unless we sent you the completely wrong color (red was ordered we sent green), even if the color does not match. We mix our paint to achieve the closest possible OEM color match however, due to age, fading and changes in toners, exact matching to older vehicles is not always possible.

If a package is refused or undeliverable through no fault of The Auto Paint Depot a 25% restocking charge will be applied on the original dollar amount of the order. It is the customers responsibility to provide a deliverable address.

If you have used the paint and have encountered a problem, please contact us immediately. We will try to diagnose the issue. If we cannot remedy the problem we may arrange an inspection of the issue. This may consist of sending the paint and a part to us for inspection and solution determination. The Auto Paint Depot customer service representative may arrange this for you. Please contact All shipping of parts and returned goods to and from The Auto Paint Depot will be at the customers expense.
