The computerized paint-matching system we use provides our refinish technicians with the right formula to match the paint color on your vehicle perfectly. Additionally, the exceptional quality of materials we use for paint finishes, including mica, pearl and metallic, along with our expert application, ensures a precision finish. You have our promise: perfect color match, perfect finish. How do we accomplish this? Once the paint code of the vehicle has been determined, there are often multiple “variants” of the color (that is, differences in shading from batch to batch or between different paint suppliers that the vehicle manufacturer still considers to be the same color). To determine which variant is on a particular vehicle, an area is rubbed with an abrasive paste and then polished. This area is then scanned with a color matching camera that can help narrow down which variant of the color is on this particular vehicle. Once the variant is identified, the color is mixed and test-card is sprayed and compared to the vehicle to confirm the accuracy of the color match. Finally, the magic happens. The last phase of producing an accurate, invisible color match is the “blend”. This means that in addition to the damaged area that needs to be painted, the color will be gradually “blended” into the surrounding panels. When done correctly, this will result in a seamless finish that the human eye is not able to perceive as being any different from the surrounding finish.
