How Color Matching Your Car Works


When a ding or scratch appears on your vehicle, you might be wondering how you are going to restore it to its former beauty. Fortunately, color matching a car is a lot easier than most people think, and when you take your vehicle to an auto body shop, you can be confident great work will be done. 

Find Color Code

Your car might be red, but there are a lot of different reds out there. Your car should have a specific color code that indicates the exact shade your car needs. You can find this code by checking on the manufacturer’s website. All you need is the model number, manufacturer name and year of the car. 

Order Paint

Once you have the code, you can take your vehicle to an auto shop. They may already have some of that paint on hand. Otherwise, it will need to be ordered. 

Mix If Car Requires a Blend

Some cars need two different types of paint in order to get the exact hue right. If that is the case, then auto repair workers will blend different paints together until it matches your vehicle precisely. 
Color matching is a true art, and the professionals at your local auto shop can do the job perfectly. Contact Kearny Mesa Auto Body in San Diego at 858-292-4455 to learn more about various auto body services available.
