Can You Paint My Car Using Factory Colors?

This is a common question we receive in our Body Shop, the answer is yes.  Car manufacturers use a code (paint code), it’s typically located in the door jamb area on the lower LH Corner (sometimes RH depending on the car brand) on a white decal type label.

Paint suppliers develop the color match from these codes and the formulas from the car maker.  We order your color using this code and, by using high quality paints, we get an almost exact match to your factory color.  The reason we say almost is;  There are paint variations based on where the car was manufactured (the plant it came out of), what batch of cars where produced, variations in the assembly line etc.  Using a blend when repairing paint, allows us to blend any variation into the panel, further improving the color match.

It’s why we guarantee color match on all blended panels, and as a foot note, we always blend panels unless you specify otherwise.

When painting an entire car, color match is less of an issue, therefore the blending technique is not needed.
