Our Lechler water based paint system comes complete with a book that can help us to locate where the paint code is and what it is on the car. Once we have the code we enter this into the computer under the appropriate manufacturers make and model and year if necessary. This then tells us exactly how much of each colour in grams we need to match. Once we have mixed the paint we offer it up to the car to make sure it is a match. The paint system will offer different variations but usually the standard mix is a perfect match 9 times out of ten. If it doesn't match we will mix a different variation.
"How do you match my alloy wheels? "
We carry five different alloy wheel silvers from extra fine through to course. One of these is usually a perfect match. Again we will offer up the silver paint to the existing paint or match it using a pre painted tester card.
