Am trying to repaint my rusted door , how do I get the exactly same colour as its now.
Went to local Bunnings they suggested this is the best I can get , but it is white!

  • Are you planing to take the door off before spraying?

    • Don’t think so, is it required?

      • Depends if you want to spray everything behind it the same colour :)

    What they are suggesting is just a primer, not a paint, but you will need it anyway.

    You can get cans of paint that is used for Colourbond fencing that should be close. At a guess from the photo this looks like it is pretty close to "Domain".

    • Edit: colorbond (please excuse pegaxs tardiness on this occasion)

      Correct it's a primer, so you would topcoat with an external grade non-epoxy metal paint. Alternatively you could use this product after you use the solvent to clean it.

      My guess is Classic Cream

    • My apologies it was incorrect link have updated the correct one

        Sorry for offending everyone by misspelling "Colorbond". Seems I really upset someone by spelling it incorrectly. I really do need to lift my game, and for that, I sincerely and wholeheartedly apologise for my tremendous oversight. I will embark on a program to better educate myself next time…

        Anyway, enough of that petty shit, what you would be better off with is maybe this colour.

    Plus one for colorbond colour. If in doubted the actual colour, grab a colour chart for colorbond colours from your favourite paint supplier and compare it next to the door.
