Colour selection

Selecting the right colours is a critical step in the renovation finish process. The colours can be chosen as desired, while achieving the right colour has strong value for the driver of a classic motor vehicle. This means that colour selection is traditionally limited by the vehicle history, or what the original colour a specific car was manufactured in. These restrictions are predominantly driven by the selling year of the particular model. Modern environmental protection laws prohibit the use of original materials from the vehicle’s era, while the colour making process relies on formulating a recipe that is as close to the original colour master as possible. The pigmentation options have greatly improved in recent years, so reproducing the exact colour required is much more likely today. The SPECTRAL Colour System database features thousands of colour tones. The Colour Lab develops more basecoat (thinner-based) and acrylic (2K) recipes from the supplied colour masters. Water-borne processes are unfit for coating classic cars, since the resulting coats have weak structures with short life spans.
