Paint Matching:
Everyone online tells you to go to the local paint store, have it bring out its color computer, and zap your car. Then, voila! You have matched paint. Not true. The computer color analyzer can only give recommendations based on what is stored in its memory for previously mixed paint codes. These codes are only an approximation, though. Many of the paint supplier brands weren’t around 50 years ago, so color matching is a best guess (for instance, Grabber Blue comes up as a BMW color on some systems). The computer is only a start. The older your paint is, the harder it is to match. Original paint from the ’60s not only varied widely back then, but after 50-plus years, it will not be the same color it was, even if you stored it inside. The older the paintjob, the cruder the technology used to mix the paint, and so, the harder it is to match (if you painted your car a 2015 color, you have a better chance of matching it). Even if you do have some of the paint left over from a restoration, the paint on your car may have faded, and you may need to have the original paint tinted to match. On top of that, the mixing bank materials change frequently. For instance, the size and shape of the aluminum used in the metallic paints changes and greatly affects the look of the paint. Metallic paint is much harder to match due to this, and much harder to apply to get the metallic to look right. Paints generally darken as they dry, so you can’t see if it is a match until it fully cures.
