Did you know that our car body and classic car repair shop in Royal Tunbridge Wells has an integrated paint mixing room complete with an ICI tinting system? Most workshops include a mixing scheme in their facilities. If a business performs accident repairs or car body repairs, it isn’t convenient to continuously call suppliers and have them mix colours then deliver them to you. Even companies in classic car restoration with lower demand for paint still have tinting systems onsite.
Bonnet, bootlid or bumper repairs, we have Orpington and the whole of Southern England covered with a responsive range of services and the promise of perfect paint finishes every time.
The scheme itself has dozens of different colours, metallic bases and paint stabilisers. When we undertake a classic car repair job, or when we perform accident repairs or car body repairs on a newer model for our Orpington customers, we cross reference a code in the engine bay, or in the door shuts, to obtain the name of the colour and a mixing formula for it.
We then mix the paint by volume, using weights as a measure for individual tinters to get the colour exactly right. From major classic car restorations to bumper repairs and more, we at Hillary’s Coachworks produce showroom finishes with edge-to-edge or blended matches which are close to perfection.
