Expert Paint Matching Revealed

When you have damage that needs to be repaired, how do you know that the repair is going to match? Will your bumper stand out like a sore thumb? Will your new door be white while the rest of your vehicle is red? Don’t worry! With expert paint matching, it’s now possible to get the exact color that your vehicle came with! In fact, paint matching can occur with every imaginable color out there, even custom colors. But how do we do it?

Here’s a few of our secrets when it comes to auto paint matching.

First, we take some important information about your car. This includes the basics like, year, make and model. We’ll also use the VIN. For example, a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS in white could have a different paint code than a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro. Manufacturers like to give their paint colors interesting names like Summit White or Beluga Brown. To set themselves apart they may even use strange names like Pontiac’s Verdoro  Green or Ford’s Freudian Gilt. Strange names aside, we need the exact information about your car to determine the correct color. The VIN helps because sometimes (although rarely) there is more than one color in the same year or the same color with slight variations.

Once we have that information, we’ll do some prep work to match it even  further. We’ll spot check an area on the car with our expert paint matching technology. This means that we’ll find a good spot, buff out some of the contaminants and polish it up. Then we can use an expert auto paint matching camera to compare the paint make sure that the paint match is absolutely perfect.

Next, we’ll complete your repairs. This means we’ll be getting you a new door, fender, or repairing the existing one that you have. Once the repairs or replacements are complete, we’ll finish the top layer over the color match to make sure that this new section of paint matches your car exactly. You wouldn’t want a brand new fender on a 2007 vehicle – that would definitely make it stand out. Come on it and we’ll show you how we can get the perfect paint match for you!
