‘Colors must fit together as pieces in a puzzle or cogs in a wheel – Hans Hoffman.’
The essence of life is colours.
When an Automotive manufacturer creates a car, they want it it be noticed.
When a restorer re-creates a classic car, they want to ensure that the colours make it stand out.
That’s where our passion and background come from; we love automotive and we love colours.
Allard’s are caught in this wonderful position of supplying colours to either bring a car back to its original colour, or, to provide colours that fit in with a new automotive dream project.
We supply three types of Automotive Clients:
Allard supplies Automotive repair shops with paints and supplies that put your car or motorcycle back on the road and repair the damage caused by an accident.
We work closely with automotive repair shops to help them match the colours for their customer’s repaired vehicles.
There are professionals and hobbyist who love to restore cars, motorcycles, ute’s, trucks, buses, military equipment and other historical equipment. If it runs on a road there are people who will restore it.
When it comes to restoring a project, a lot of work goes into re-fettling the mechanicals and electrics of the equipment to near new or better.
If so much work goes getting the mechanical and electrics correct, how much more do you want the colour to make a statement about the restoration?
That’s where we step in. We understand and know what’s changed in the last 120 years in paint technology to advise you on the approach you should take and colours you should be using.
One tip before you start a project; contact us early so we can advise on what things you should be aware of in the restoration for painting, it could save you a few dollars and some heartache.
Is there a car show coming up, have you created a work of art in a street car?
What about that next race, will it be a track day at Wakefield Park or Bathurst or a SummerNATS entry?
We’ve got the colours and paint for projects. Come to the shop and discuss your project. We can put together some colour palettes to give you an idea of what your production will look like. Take them home put them with your project and visualise what the final product will look like.
If you’re running a sponsored vehicle, we ensure the colours you need meet the specification of your sponsors and supporters. We know its important for your project to look good but more so let sponsors be seen!
