Collision FAQ > Collision Questions > Is the paint going to match the original color of the vehicle ?
Good color match, and a factory like appearance of your vehicles finish are critical. In fact a poor finish can diminish the value of your vehicle at trade-in time. That’s why at DC Collision Center we use the paint-refinish system developed by PPG, the world leader in automotive finishes. PPG backs up our quality work with their lifetime PPG Paint Performance Guarantee. Today our refinish mixing systems are fully computerized, providing us access to over 500,000 standard and custom formulas. And our refinish technicians have been fully trained by PPG in advanced color matching techniques.
Note that matching paint on an older model vehicle can present more challenges because of the effects of the sun and weather conditions over time. However, a high-quality repair facility will take the necessary steps to ensure your satisfaction with the match.
