Through the use of cutting-edge technology and years of experience and precision skill, our technicians are able to achieve stunning results that leave our customers unable to tell where the repair was made.
When your vehicle incurs body damage that requires repair and repainting, it’s not enough to refer back to the original factory paint specified by your vehicle’s manufacturer. Even with newer vehicles, factors such ultraviolet light exposure, road salt wear, and oxidation can have an effect on your vehicle’s paint color, causing it to vary slightly from it’s original hue. This variation isn’t noticeable until the paint is applied to your vehicle and a side-by-side mismatch becomes glaringly obvious. This is where technology and expertise make the difference.
Rallye Collision Center utilizes spectrophotometers to electronically measure the true color of your vehicle. This device shines a white light on the repair area to precisely measure the wavelengths of the reflected light, processed through interference filters that eliminate ambient light wavelengths to distill the returning color prescription to only your vehicle’s true color match. This reading is then sent to a computer program that processes the data and produces a pigment formula to perfectly recreate the color.
Once an accurate paint color is produced, the quality of the painting equipment and the skill of the technician take precedence in achieving perfect results. Many factors can affect how a paint color appears. Tiny paint flakes can settle on your vehicle differently than the original paint based on the quality of the paint spray gun, the setting of the nozzle and the skill of the technician. Rally Collision Center uses only the highest quality spray guns to ensure outstanding quality every time and the years of experience our technicians have at auto paint color matching means that your vehicle will look better than it did before it was damaged. We are confident that you’ll be amazed by the quality of the paint matching we provide.
