    Default Stoopidest Question Yet Re; Paint

    Yes, it may be obvious to some but this is bugging me.

    Got my rear bumper resprayed a while ago and its a good smooth finish but its the wrong shade. Except when I kneel down and look at it from a different angle where it becomes the right shade!

    So, the big question - could it have been sprayed the wrong way?! Like, top to bottom or bottom to top or side to side??!! What i mean is, can the paint be applied in the wrong way / direction and make it appear wrong?

    Please, if this is a stupid question, hold off on the sarcastic answers and ridicule me instead!
