How Important is Colour Matching When Painting Your Car?

Tuesday 16 May 2017

The short answer is that it’s extremely important.

You might have scratched your car and just want to do a quick touch-up job, or maybe you’ve had your bumper bar replaced and need to get it re-painted.

But, what colour is your car? It might look black, but is the specific paint colour actually called black? While it might not be immediately obvious to the naked human eye, there are a number of different shades of black, but if you were to paint your car the wrong shade, the colour variations will be noticeable.

This is why colour matching is so important!

What’s Involved in a Colour Matching Service?

DIY colour matching is no easy task, which is why we recommend you take advantage of our professional paint matching service in Bayswater, Melbourne.

Even if you know the exact colour of your car’s paint, general wear and tear, and exposure to the elements, harsh UV rays, road grime and even cleaning products can slightly change the colour of your vehicle.

If you compare the colour of your car now, to the day you purchased it, you’ll probably notice that the paint has faded, or has lost some of its former shine. While this is perfectly normal and won’t be particularly obvious when you’re just looking at your car, it does make colour matching more difficult.

As part of our professional paint matching service we offer our expert guidance in car paint colour matching and application techniques. We also use the latest technology to aid in this process to ensure optimum results.

Why is Colour Matching So Important?

If you don’t match your car’s paint colours accurately, you can easily end up with a patchy looking paint job. When this happens, your vehicle will go down in value and its overall visual appeal will be affected.
