Let There Be Color
An important part of painting is the selection and preparation of the paint. Selecting the correct color is particularly important when repainting only a panel or a portion of a panel. Any variation in the color, hue, or shade will be easily detected.
Each type and color of paint is given an identifying number (code). This number appears on a plate or tag on the vehicle’s door frame or other location. Keep in mind that age, environment, and care will affect the color of the original finish.
Every color weathers differently, depending on a pigment composition and exposure to the environment. Some colors fade lighter, while others become darker as they weather. We color match the weathered color on a car so that it will match to the existing color, unless our client says otherwise.
