Is there any way to fix a paintjob like this?

Got a question on outside appearance modifications. Questions about body kits, exterior lighting, just anything thats a visual mod on the "exterior" of the car. Ask those questions here.

That does look pretty off.....I have the same question as mike^^^

Did you jsut get the kit painted or the whole car?

That is a good picture though...as far as the quality. or to me it is at least. my night pictures always tunr out like poo.

Wet sand and buff out the entire car to blend it maybe if it hasn't been done.

Usually fiberglass body kits are a little textured and need sanded out, then some high build primer, then a coat of whatever primer the rest of the car is.

would it really be that hard to match the paint, i was thinking maybe a yellower clear would help? I dunno, i just paid 700$ for this and it would be a waste of money to repaint, but you guys are the experts. if i were to put the vinyls on, would it be easy to remove and replace if ever i want to repaint the car?

Should have had them blend it, otherwise it's going to look different.

Go back to them and tell them to wet sand and buff out your entire car. I'm guessing they just sprayed them and gave it back. Its hard to match the paint like that unless its speacially made so you have to blend it.

you would have to have new vinyl cut and put on... it would cost more money..... you cant reuse the vinyl.

I haven't seen that kit before. Is it something new Kaminari came out with? Anyways, I have seen TONS of SILVER cars that don't match. It must be the amount of 'glitter' (you know what I mean) in the different silvers? Dunno. I painted my front SXT bumper and rear RT bumper with the same paint code as stock (PR4 red) and it turned out slightly darker....

You know what.. you could be right. At my last job we were painting these bodykits for Mustangs and we had a Vista Blue 06 Stang that the bumpers/hood did not match AT ALL when inside under fluorescent lighting. Our company actually invested in a little handheld light that was the the same color as sunlight to make sure we were getting it right. As soon as you pulled the car outside though, the paint matched perfectly. (Again, it was mostly the 'glitter' effect)

Weirdness.

had simple like this with my former Corolla with EVO KIT bodykit. I was told that bodykit and car body are different kind and caused paint a little different. I left like this till I sold my car away.

its actually the striker body kit. It's very similar to the kaminari one but i don't think its thier product. The thing is, under sunlight the car does show a bit of difference, well noticable to me because i'm a perfectionist. However in the dark meaning night and shade the difference is VERY noticable and i was told too that since its not the same material the car doesn't match, buit i've seen plenty that do. Whats going on? I dunno if i mentioned this before, but could it also be the clear the guy used?
