If you don’t have a paint code or colour name, or if we don’t have a formula, there may be a need for eye-matching.  The time it takes to match a colour will vary depending on the colour. Certain colours like 3 layer pearls and some metallics may take longer. Some colours need to dry completely to show their true colour.

We often ask customers to leave a part that we can match to ie. petrol flap. This will allow us time to do a good match, and will mean you can get on with your day.

Our colour matching service is free for quantities of 1 litre or more.

A colour matching fee of $20 applies for volumes less than 1 litre.

We provide a colour that is a blend-able colour.

Whether you’re painting a late model car or a old classic there will generally be the same options available regardless. The  3 more commonly used paints are Enamel, Acrylic lacquer and 2 pack. Most modern vehicles are painted in either water-borne or solvent-borne 2 pack paints. Enamels and Acrylics are the cheaper options available and can still produce some very good results, making them perfect for D.I.Y’ers repairing their paintwork at home. However some modern colours are not available in Enamel or Acrylic. 2 pack paints are more expensive, but will provide you with a more durable finish. 2 pack paints must be sprayed in a controlled environment such as a spray booth, using a supplied air respirator.
