Got the GM strut tower brace and painted it black and green. Cleared the green with a 2-part clear, and the black with a satin. This was all using rattle cans. Turned out amazing.

I also had to replace my rear bumper cover due to a minor mishap. Had a local shop paint it up. I installed my matte black with gloss black center piece Havoc rear diffuser at the same time. Took most of the day. The same shop painted my diffuser.

Wow Thomas, I never realized you were so versatile! Looks good!

Oh, and Nutro, I'm not sure where he got his paint, but if you're looking for Synergy in a can, this is a place you can start. I got mine there:

Affordable too.

Thanks.

Holy crap. Those are decent prices, but then it's $10 to ship. And how close is the match? And then you have to wait.

I drive 20 minutes out to Sherwin Williams Automotive (the "Automotive" part is important), and have them mix me up a can or two while I wait. I think it comes out to about the same, and then I can drive home and start using it immediately.

They also have the 2k clearcoat which is what you'll need if you want a factory-hard clear. It's in a can with a capsule of hardener inside that you puncture with a button on the bottom and when you mix it up, you have 48 hours to use it before it hardens in the can. Great stuff though. Just make sure you have a big enough job that you don't waste most of it.

Yeah, that'll work fine for small jobs. And if you take your time and get the hang of using the equipment, it should give you good results. Just remember; prep-work is everything. Dust is your enemy!

Dealers don't know jack. All they can get you is those little touch up paint bottles anyway. You need to get it custom mixed, either online or at a local store or shop. Just give them the paint code.

But yeah I'd never use rattle cans on bodywork. Anything that goes up against the existing factory paint just won't match all that well due to a lot of factors. Mostly, the metallic elements in the paint will make it look off because they weren't laid down at the same time, so at different angles, you'll be able to spot the repaint with metallic colors. However, the color looks great every time I've used it. I painted my rims, strut tower brace, and three different computer mice with it. As long as it's not a body panel right up against another one, you can't tell.

Oh boy, and I need to get my fenders replaced soon.
Maybe if I blend the new bumper, hood, fenders it will all Match up better opposed to painting on piece of the car
