How to Match Paint | Chipex

Find out how to match paint – from your car’s original to your perfect Chipex touch up kit

Here at Chipex, one of the things we pride ourselves on the most is our 100 colour match guarantee. It pretty much does what it says on the tin; when you order your Chipex car paint touch up kit, you tell us your car paint code, we mix the touch up paint so it completely matches, and then you apply it to your car to cover up that minor paintwork damage that has been really getting on your nerves. In the very unlikely event that it doesn’t totally match your original car paint, we will remix it for you.

So it’s simple – all you need to do is tell us your car colour code. However, that can be the moment a lot of people seem to come unstuck. People often imagine that there will be a confusing method of how to match paint easily and simply between the two – in reality that couldn’t be further from the truth.

There is really is no big secret about how to match paint – and our guide shows you how to do it easily.

As finding out how to match paint is such a big part of Chipex, and something we get asked about a lot, there is a lot of information on our site about how to do it properly. There is a dedicated page –How to Find your Colour Code‘ – where you can find all the information. We also have our brilliantHow Chipex Works’ page, which contains all the advice you’ll ever need about how to use our car paint touch up kits, including how to match paint. Just in case, we’ll outline the process here for you, too.

You might already know your colour code, in which case, all you need to do is tell us it and we can begin mixing the perfect paint straight away. If you’re not sure what it is, you can find it in one of two ways. Either tell us your registration number (we will then be able to find what the code of your car is through our records) or use of colour code location guide to search your car for the code. It’s normally in quite a hidden location, so using our guide will be a massive help!

Once we know your car colour code, we will then be able to mix your paint to that exact specification – the ultimate match to help your car look its best again.
