Because of the two hue nature of most our factory paint jobs, I think it is next to impossible to do blending on our cars and have it come out perfect.
My body shop got my rear bumper and JDM hood scoop to look really good when there is no direct sun, but when the sun is out in full force the "undertones" reflect differently than the rest of the car. Most people probably can't see it but it drives me crazy.
I have come to the conclusion that the solution to getting the 'two hue' Subaru paint jobs to look consistent across the whole car is to paint the entire car at the same time.
70 to engine rebuild faster than you can say "poofff!"
