Colour matching is difficult. It’s also critical to the success of your touch-up paint job. No matter how good the job you do is, if the colour is too different from the rest of the vehicle, your repair will be obvious.
For years, this problem has frustrated those brave enough to attempt a touch-up job outside of a paint shop. If you visit the local hardware store, you’ll see that most of the paint there is not suitable for automotive use – one stage enamels dominate, and it’s impossible to get them to match today’s base/clear two stage automotive paints. Even specially formulated automotive touch up paint available at the auto parts counter has problems. The colour is matched to the colour of your vehicle when it left the factory. Exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun has undoubtedly changed it.
Rondex Auto Body Supplies can precisely match the colour of your car, and provide you with the right paint (base/clear coat, acrylic enamel, urethane, etc.) quantities as small as a single aerosol can to as large as a five-gallon pail. Once you’ve ordered once, we’ll provide you with labeling information to order more, and we’ll also put it in a database, so subsequent orders will be fast and easy.
To have your paint matched, send or bring a sample (small removable panel, if you can) to one of our locations. Alternately, you can match the colour yourself to the industry standard Pantone colour matching system, and we’ll make it up for you.
If you’re a hobbyist, or just an average car owner brave enough to undertake your own touch-ups, you’ll find that Rondex Auto Body Supplies is your closest ally when it comes to professional grade products, expertise, and a willingness to share.
