Dented, scratched, dinged or paint damaged cars often need spray painting and resprays. When there's serious damage to your paintwork it's often necessary to have panels on your vehicle partially or completely resprayed. Respraying is also often required due to vehicles natural deterioration from age, where years of weathering and trees and birds have left the paintwork on your car looking faded or patchy.

restore that classic
car tucked away in a garage somewhere, car spray painting and resprays are perfect for that too.
To properly complete a repraying smash repair the following must happen: First dismantle and remove the part or panel, then sand it, add primer so the paint sticks, respray up to the several coatings, apply clear coat to seal, re-assemble and put the part or panel back on the car, and finally finish off with some polishing.
The colour and type of paint on your car makes a big difference to the paint repair process. With some colours and standard paints a repairer can simply paint the localised area of the car where the scratch or paint damage has occurred. this is known as a S.M.A.R.T repair. If your car colour is metallic or a three layer pearl then more coats of paint are required and more extensive paint blending on the surrounding panels is required. Depending on the size or location of the required paint respraying, the price can vary quite substantially to return the car back to its perfect factory condition.

Smash repairers use the VIN # to contact the maker of your vehicle and get exact colour code of your car. Alternatively, if they have access to the vehicle, they use the paint code on your car, which can be found on the door jam of most modern vehicles. This paint code is then put into a computer that tells the repairer how to make the exact paint colour needed for respraying.
Repairers also use a bit of finesse make sure the paint colour is spot on and matched with the rest of the car as over time paint colours fade and therefore original colours might be too bright. That's the art of paint matching.
