    Hello

    We are not airbrushers, but have a lot of excess basecoat paint that we want to give away, or it will be dried out and disposed of

    Would anyone like it?

    We are in the automotive business, so use sprayguns

    Hi Jenny, and what type of paint is it... apart from automotive... Enamel, acrylic, 2 pack and a brand would be useful. Thanks, Mark

    Thanks, just for everyone who will see this,
    Can you tell us
    What type of paint is it ie: water based, urethane/ 2k ?
    What colours ?
    What quantity ?

    I for one am interested but for me its a 300 mile round trip. But i could probably get someone to collect unless we can arrange couriers at our cost of course.

    People, look at thread title!:) "Basecoats" usually mean it's 1K basecoats. People proposing the paint are from automotive, so I think there should be not many variants;) But who knows...
    Acrylics (automotive) usually 1 stage but 2K.

    I know that some paint is remained in mix stand cans and people familiar with the stand's owner could get that paint for free;)

    If anyone is seriously interested before it gets disposed of, its our paint library excess, could be 15ml to 200ml of each - we havent fully gone through the whole lot, but its is mainly 1k basecoat, max mayeer, ici, dupont, nexa. Various colours. With regards to courier etc, I'm not sure of the legalities of sending paint.......hope this helps

    Jenny, this is a busy forum normally, give it until tomorrow for more replies if you can.
    I do want to thank you on behalf of everyone for the kind offer and thinking of us.

    Its too much cost for me to travel to you and I can't get anyone to collect on my behalf hopefully theres someone closer

    Even volitile paint can normally be sent by road but not air.
    Just check with the courier company first
