Always perform a spray out 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. 

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 due to age, fading and or 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.
