Have you ever thought about taking your painting skills to the next level?

If you're a DIY guru and have been using spray cans for a while now, Maybe it's time to step up to a spray gun. Here at VG Auto Paints we hold FREE Spray, Dent repair and buffing lessons.

We teach you how to set up a spray gun, apply primer,colour and clear, repair a dent and Sand and buff paint work and more.

The lessons run on a Saturday morning from 8am till about 11:30.

Normally there are from 20 to 40 people who attend. Everyone sits down and the two trainers start the lesson.

During the lesson you have an opportunity to come up and use the spray guns and Buffing machines. No experience is necessary as the trainers will guide you through the steps and proper ways to use the equipment.

VG Auto Paints have been holding these free lessons for the last 7 years and over the years have had thousands of people attend. Some people have gone so far as to continue study at TAFE and some people have used the lessons to gain knowledge for their current work or to get a job where knowing how to paint is a great asset.

In addition to the free lessons, VG Auto Paints also hold Hands On Lessons.
