Painting our love for your car
When you have been involved in an accident you get very concerned whether your car will ever be the same again, if it will ever look as good as it did when you bought it. How many times have you seen a friend’s car and you just had to ask them what on earth happened to their car? If that question must be asked, we surely hope it is before the car has been taken to the panel beaters. If it’s been to the shop and its still in a questionable state, now that’s what nightmares are made of.

One thing we constantly find ourselves having to do for clients is a paint job. So, here are a few things you might want to know about how we do spray painting at Farchis.
- Farchis makes use of temperature-controlled aero-cure Spray booth and baking oven. The paint booths are well lit and ventilated to allow for a conducive work environment for the technicians. As you can guess, a happy technician means a great paint job.
Now, onto the issue of temperature control, it is a crucial factor as it affects the finish of the paint job. Monitoring the temperature affects how easily the paint pumps and flows which affects application. It also affects how quickly the coating dries, therefore making it important for the temperature to be kept constant through that process.
Its important to keep the paint itself at the required temperature because you do not want it too cold or too hot. If the paint is cold it does not flow and pump easily because it is too thick, this results in a paint that is not smooth. If the paint is too warm, its runny therefore it will pump and flow easily and you might have too much paint that needed. So, it is a very delicate process that needs to be well regulated. Its very important to manage temperature from a colour perspective as temperature variations have been known in certain cases to affect the colour of the paint.
- Speaking of colour, Farchis technicians guarantee precise colour-matching and coding since they use a state of the art aero-mixer. The mixer consists of all the main paint toners so you can rest assured they have you covered. In case you are wondering why it is important for the technicians to know the colour code of the car, well here is a quick explanation why. Well the obvious answer is that it helps to know the exact colour of the paint to be used. The thing is, while in ordinary talk would be the colour of the paint is red, think about all the kinds of red cars you have seen. Although the colours may look the same, car manufacturers are always making tweaks to the exterior paint, so last year’s red may not look the same with that of the current year. So, for a more specific tell on what colour is to be used a code will be a better tell.
Where do you find the colour code of your car? Well there are numerous places on your car where you could find it depending on the car, but here are a few places you could check.
- The radiator
- Trunk lid
- Under the driver’s seat
- Glove box
- Spare tire wheel well
If you struggle to find it, do not worry yourself, hand it over to the experts at Farchis and they will quickly pick it up to ensure they use the correct paint colour. So, worry no more on which panel beater to take your car to for that perfect spray paint, Farchis will make sure that your car will have no sign of whatever damage there was; it will be like getting a new car.
