To Color Match A Car

The color match process is creating a new color to match a desired color like that of your car’s old paint, current paint, or a completely new color.  The color created in the mixing room should be an exact match to the desired color.  That is why we use a state of the art computer program (and the detailed eye of our paint technician) to insure the car’s perfect color match.

The Art Of The Color Match

Color matching is an art and sometimes be a difficult job.  Why do we say that?  Because, in most cases, only small areas or one panel of your vehicle needs to be painted.  And although most cars have a manufacturer’s color code, the computer program does not take into account the natural fade of colors overtime.

Amateur paint shops simply use the color produced by the color code and computer.  When they complete the spot repairs your car will end up looking like a spotted animal instead of one seamless color.

As you will see, color match is an art form.  Matching the new color to the existing finish becomes very important when making spot repairs.

Color Match A Custom Color

If your entire vehicle needs to be painted, color matching is not a problem.  Together we will create the custom color of your dreams.  Many of our clients like a particular color they found in a magazine, in nature or from their imagination.

Whether your car needs a complete paint job or a spot paint job we will prepare, prime, and seal all panels.  We inspect all repaired, primed panels for proper and complete body repair, and primer application.  This insures good adhesion of final top color coat, clear coat, and insures the paint will look like new on your vehicle after your auto body repair work.
