Is this stuff supposed to match the paint on the car? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
I managed to stick a deep 3 inch scratch into my nearest front wheel arch parking into my parent's garage. I cleaned it up, built it up with primer, and then sprayed it with about 4 thin layers of Mauritius blue spray paint from the dealer - of course after working down the primer to a smoothish finish. I've also worked down the paint with fine wet and dry for a smooeth finish. But the result is the mauritius blue is, well see for yourselves:
Do I need to T cut it to bring a shine to it? Will lacquer solve the mis-match issue? Or do I need to face facts, that a spray paint will never match the factory paint on a car? Avus Silver matched my wheels perfectly when I repaired them, so why not the body?
Any suggestions (other than, keep the day job and get a professional in [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]) gratefully received.
