The Car Paint Color Matching Process

The Car Paint Color Matching Process

Do you have a scratch, ding or other area on your car that needs to be repaired with paint? Because finding the exact same shade can be a difficult task, especially if your car is older, it may be best to have a professional do it for you. Here is how the process works:

1. Figure out the color code.

To figure out the color code of the paint on your car, you will need to know the model number, year and manufacturer of your car. You can then go to the manufacturer’s site and find the color code if your car is new enough. You may also be able to find it on your vehicle’s identification plate.

2. Order the paint.

Your technician will then order the paint that matches the color code. Some vehicles will need multiple paint colors because they have more than one tone.

3. Mix the paint.

This is the most important step of the color matching process. Your technician will adjust the hue using variations in darkness and lightness. They will then blend the color to avoid it turning out too dark or too light. Once they have the perfect shade, they are ready to repair your vehicle.

If you have any damage on your car that needs to be repaired with paint, have a technician take a look at it so you can quickly and easily get your vehicle looking good as new. For more information on automobile painting in Raleigh, visit this website.
