About us

Posted January 15th, 2014 // by Dee Janes-Wait //


We are an auto paint and Body shop supply store, supplying to the trade, and also to the general public.

At our partner business Banbury Body Shop, we are constantly being asked to supply various amounts of paint to our customers and so, due to public demand, we decided to expand on this opportunity and Auto Paintstore was born.

We offer a very special service as we don’t just sell the products that we stock; we also have first-hand experience of using them. We therefore have extensive knowledge of every product that we sell, and if necessary can even demonstrate how to use them, as we always have a paint specialist on hand to offer advice.

We have the ICI Nexa Autocolor paint mixing system in store, because it is a premium paint brand with the largest colour bank, and is also very competitively priced. There is no compromise on quality but great value for money. Again having used Nexa ourselves, we are able to advise you as to which additional products work best with Nexa, and what sort of finish you can expect to achieve by using it.

We offer a variety of sizes, from a small touch up pot, aerosol, to any quantity that you require, and if you bring a panel or colour sample to us, we will do our best to colour match it for you.

We also stock Maxmeyer and Lechler lacquers and hardeners, as (in our opinion) they give the best professional finish.

3M and U-Pol are also brands that we use ourselves and trust the quality enough to recommend to anyone.

We are not just about paint for cars, vans etc. You can use our paint for a variety of projects, from sprucing up your garden furniture, to painting fridges, washing machines, in a colour scheme to suit you instead of one to suit the manufacturers. The same could also apply to kitchen doors, or TV cabinets, or anything that needs a new lease of life.

It is now common place to recycle, so why not recycle your old furniture with a lovely new coat of paint. You can achieve the high gloss lacquered finish that costs so much in many furniture stores for a fraction of the cost. We can advise you which product will work best for your desired finish, and again a colour can be mixed to suit you. You can even buy the preparation materials from us to sand your furniture down!

Thank you for looking at our page and if you are in or around Banbury, pop along to see us. You will always be given a warm welcome and friendly advice, if not just give us a call, we are always happy to help!


Happy New Year

Posted January 2nd, 2014 // by Dee Janes-Wait //

Happy New Year from all of us at Auto Paintstore.

Well it was a long slog 2013, but we managed to achieve many things including (finally) the launch of our new website. We have got so much planned for this year, I just hope we can fit it all in!! There are so many new products coming onto the market that we would like to sell, but as with all of our products we like to test them first ourselves to make sure they are fit for purpose and really can achieve the results that they are supposed to.

We will just share a sneaky preview with you……….. we will be selling specialist paints for plastics…… available in aerosols. More details to follow soon.


So here’s to a healthy and happy 2014, we know it’s going to be a busy one!
