Some caveats--we have formulas for almost any color BUT auto manufacturers are not as consistent as you might think. Every batch of factory paint can be slightly different. So, for example, if you park a "Magnetic Grey" Toyota made on Monday next to a "Magnetic Grey" Toyota made on Wednesday you might notice a slight color difference. Often bumpers and plastic parts on brand new cars do not match perfectly because they were painted in different parts of the factory. Fading and age can also cause the color on one part of car to be different than other parts. Matching paint on a car is not easy.
Some colors require more complex and expensive paint processes. Pearl White Pearl and Candy Apple Red are examples of 3-stage paints. See 3-Stage, Candy or Tri-Coat Paints for a discussion of this technology.
COMPLETE CAR PAINTING: If you want to paint your whole car, color matching becomes less critical. Almost Everything offers non-factory paints that look similar to factory but do not match exactly. These paints ONLY work when painting the entire car. We do not offer non-factory paint for individual panels or spot repairs because the human eye can detect the variations in color, texture, depth, metallics & pearls, luminosity, etc. In fact, even when we repair vehicles with single-stage paints we usually use higher grade paints that allow us to do more fine tuning of colors . Almost Everything recommends 2-stage paint for silver, gold, champagne and bronze colors. Differences in the technology can make these colors appear less vibrant & luminous in single-stage instead of 2-stage. We are happy to show samples of the differences between 1-stage & 2-stage paints so that you can decide which works best for your budget and desired vehicle appearance.
