Customise Your Car Paint Colour for Your Next Project

Lambency Detailing

Everyone loves to be unique and this is often imposed on things that are visually and highly visible to many such as a house and a car. While you can customise everything about your house, from its architectural design to the interiors, most cars are designed to appeal to the masses.

For this reason, cars are customisable only to some extent. But if you’re among the many car enthusiasts in Singapore, some manufacturers may be able to offer cool design options and unique features to ensure that your car is uniquely yours.

This includes customising your car paint colour, wheel type, quality of tyres, type of upholstery, entertainment set, lighting, etc. That said, the easiest way for your car to stand out is with a custom paint job and regular maintenance.

How to Choose the Right Colour for Your Car?

Before we discuss how you can customise your car paint colour, you should know that there are two general categories of car paint colours – factory paints and custom paints. The former is often used in the production of vehicles that are manufactured in large quantities while the latter is customised to be unique.

Having said that, there are more than 60,000 automotive paint colours and codes available on the market. And at some point, each of those colours was/will be considered as part of the colour trend. Choosing the right car paint colour will not be easy but the following are some tips to help you choose better.

Tip 1: Research the safest colours

Car manufacturers typically produce vehicles in several colours that are considered the safest colours such as white and silver/grey as these colours reflect sunlight more efficiently, making these colours ideal for optimum road visibility.

On the contrary, bold colours like red, blue, and yellow may seem like the best colours for your car to stand out but these may end up costing you more money because some insurance companies tend to charge higher insurance premiums for vehicles with risky or bright colours.

Tip 2: Customise with sparkly pigments

The safest car paint colours may seem like a dull option but once combined with metallic or pearlescent pigments, they can add a sparkle to your car paint. Besides, combining these pigments with a range of transparent pigments yields thousands of distinctly different car paint colours.

However, unlike metallic car paint colours is based on a silver aluminium platelet, pearlescent pigments are available in a range of sparkle colours and sizes. As such, pearly colours appear to have more depth than the average car paint colour.

Tip 3: Research popular paint colours

Every year, Pantone will announce the colour of the year, which serves as a reflection of what is happening in the global culture. Once it is announced, many companies will try to incorporate it into their products, including paint manufacturers.

When it comes to popular car paint colours, trends will certainly come and go. Regardless, if you want your car paint to stand out or blend in with the crowd, it is always worth looking at popular paint colours.

Tip 4: Match the paint colour to your car’s model

Once you have selected several paint colours for your car, take the time to consider your car’s make and model. This will help determine the suitability of your customised car paint colour.

For example, yellow may look great on a sports car, but it might not suit your pickup truck. Similarly, red may be a suitable car paint colour for a luxury sedan, but it can easily overpower a conservative sedan.

Maintaining a Customised Car Paint Job

Since you have invested a lot of effort, time, and money into customising your car paint colour, you will have to maintain it to ensure that your car retains its shine for a long time. Check out the following tips to maintain your car’s custom paint job.

1. Wash your car regularly
Giving your car a regular wash is one of the best ways to protect its custom paint job. Make sure to use automotive soap and apply it with a car sponge or microfibre cloth. After that, rinse with clean water. That’s not all – you need to properly dry your car to prevent watermarks on your car’s surface.

2. Send your car for occasional wax
If washing your car regularly helps to remove dirt and retain its shine, waxing helps to provide a protective seal atop your car paint to guard against dirt, dust, pollution, water, and other harmful chemicals. It also helps to cover up small scratches and minor blemishes.

3. Reduce sun exposure
UV rays from the sun are not only dangerous for your skin but it’s also bad for your custom car paint job as sunlight can oxidise and fade the paint on your car, making it look much older than it is. If possible, try to park your car under the shade or covered space to reduce sun exposure.

4. Opt for car paint protection services
When you get a custom paint job for your car, you will want the colour to last as long as possible. In that case, opting for a car paint protection coating will help protect your customised car paint colour against damage from the likes of stone chips, tree sap, corrosive bird droppings, and fading.
