Re: Color Match

The paint finish looks good! But there is a common problem that can happen with a "lazy" shop owner or employee that matched the paint. Say you look up code WA8555. Its GM black. There are 3 or 4 blacks in the code itself. When you click on each code when the code enters the computer you'll see each black says more red, less black, more white etc. This is every paint code. Some paint codes have only 2 variants or 15 at the most I've had to deal with. Why do they do this? When a car is painted at a car deal plant each plant may mix there color at different times. This means the different toners sometimes come through more in the mix. Meaning no car has exactly the same tone depending where it was made. Hope this helps!
