You can repaint the rear drivers quarter at the same time, with the proper color, lmfao.

Both 1/4 panels are half the wrong color. :( My paint has to be mixed, it'* not in stores, so I guarantee I won't ever get an exact factory match. I don't trust myself enough to repaint this car. It'* too nice I don't want to screw it up. I repainted panels on my Cutlass, but that was a black car and easier, and I didn't like it as much as this so I was willing to try more myself.

most people won't notice the rear quarters, but in the right light at the right angle, they really stick out. But you probably already know that. Since I was there when Jim first bought the car I noticed it, lol.

Honestly, everyone at NEBF noticed. And more people since. It'* too in-your-face not to notice IMO. I took the pinstripes off so it'* a little more noticeable. It'* a shame. But I'll hopefully find someone that can blend what is there now....hopefully. At least it'* just a cosmetic thing and not something more serious.

I think it has to do with the metallic flake in the gold paint that is not sitting the same as the original paint, plus age of original paint. I know there are places out there that can color match the car in it'* current condition ( with any fade that is there). Not sure how many places have it in the U.*. , but it is a handheld unit that measures the paint and give you a formula, just like getting house paint ( color match system).

Yep, I know NAPA has it since they used it to match my paint on DR. I'll get it fixed sometime this summer I hope. Other things are more important. In the meantime I won't let it get to me.

One girl at work so far. I was only going 120 I knew she'd be easy to confuse.

sorry for the downer but that colour is very hard to scan, and you will never get it 100% right so nomatter what you will need to have it blended into the doors and up the sail panels, at which point you might as well have the hood re cleared

Peterg'* right. I had Napa mix paint for me using my color code (same color as bonne94ssei) and it'* darker than my actual color... Maybe using a body shop with a color match system.

Oh, and
