Actually, NO!
Please notice the fine print on your paint cans, "NOT FOR RETAIL SALE"
Car paint is NOT suppose to be sold to the general public and is intended
for "professional use" only. It's a wholesale product.
So actually you can't really "expect" help from the store, they all do it
but some have actually got in trouble for selling to the public.
I had one jobber move to the adjacent county just so he could
continue selling to hobbyist like me. He was facing fines here.
You better off coming here for your advice,
some store people can and will give you bad advice.
You'll get the best help here and other forums.
