WILL IT BLEND?

nah im joking, but...

...has anyone had a bumper sprayed without getting it blended in with the wing/rear quater? how good was the paint match? or is it worth blending them?

colour is black magic so a real pain in the boobs to do

he told me he thinks he can get it 95% right without blending which seems ok to me...

thanks

Both bumpers and the body kit on my car were sprayed by a friend and the colour match is perfect. As long as you get the person who paints the car to mix the paint to the colour of your car, rather than blending, then you'll keep more original paint and spend less. [Y]

Another tip is to ensure they remove the bumpers from the car before painting so that all edges are properly painted too. No point spending all the money on the paintwork only to take a short-cut in the painting and have it start to peel soon after.
