That'* why it doesn't match. 2 stage paint vs 1 layer (maybe even an enamel).

The paint looks pretty good. You are the master of whoring and making the car look great.

When Randy and I met with Toast and Gumball, I'm looking at their nice new cars thinking...if my car or paint only could look like that.

I still hate them both for having the perfect year cars.

When you guys come down...I might try and switch keys with ya!

ok... so my dad just cleaned the area, and then used an enamal spray paint to cover it. It matches well, with no lines. I think it could be cleared afterwards without any issue. Still working on the name of the cleaner that he used first.
