Spectrophotometer for paint matching

Recommended Posts

Good day. I am buying a set of bubble arches for my escort. The cars green. No idea if its original but need to find a way to match it. If i buy a Spectrophotometer, will it work out the paint code that allows the paint shop to mix to match the car. 

Any links appreciated

Or take a panel off of the car and let them match it?

you know that,s not a bad idea. i am not blending the arches to the car. I will be attaching them so they can be easily removed and replaced. So they will get painted separately. I can take the bonnet with the wings. Great idea. 

Thanks.

👍 I took my boot lid when they matched mine. Easier to carry.

Spectrophotometer are expensive to buy. Better to take the boot lid to be matched.
