Just picked it up and did the "Brandon" inspection lol! I gotta say though when it comes to finish work (wetsand/buff) I've personally never seen a better job...and I've painted every car I've ever owned lol! The bumpers to fender/quarter are a shade off IMO but I can live with it. The sideskirts look perfect though and that was the biggest problem before.

I'll also say this though. I give any shop that takes the time and consideration to fill, actually fully paint, and even wetsand/buff the insides of skirts and bumpers gets a thumbs up from me, cause that RARELY happens👍

The bumper to fender shade being off is common with pretty much any paint job. Especially pearls and metallics

There's too much pearl in your new paint, it will only get darker. And no you can't blend after the fact.
You should just get the bumper and skirts redone. I know it sucks, but that's the IMHO best way to have your car back to normal.
And also beware of how many layers of paint your gonna end up with.
If you were closer, I'd do it for ya for cost of materials.
Maybe you have some old friends that paint, that may hook you up?

Thanks Randy. The whole rear bumper was painted due to some additional work I wanted done. The front bumper however is not fully painted, yet I literally can't even see the blend line. Hopefully as it gets darker I don't start to notice it. Seeing it's the front bumper though I know I'll be painting it eventually anyways due to future rock chips and whatnot, so eventually that blend line will be naturally taken care of anyways. The entire skirt was painted as well though, so our only future concern will probably be with the front bumper if anything. At this point the ENTIRE passenger side has been painted though with equal coats of pearl so hopefully all blends well in the future.

I very much appreciate your comments though as I know you're a pro in the field. And believe me, if you were closer my car would be at your shop now lol!
