    That looks like a traders job, they only want the damage fixed and won't pay for it to be blended in to the other panels.

    Ruins an other wise nice motor IMO.

    Maybe it's a temp job to avoid it getting rusty, wait until the warm weather then have another go, just an idea....

    Or he bought a new door off ebay that was pre-painted? Thought he'd got the right colour?

    Well after having my wing replaced the garage repainted and blended into the door but I was not happy with the colour match......



    So they ended up repainting half the car..... then I was happy as they did an ace job. Can you see half way down the drivers door.... change in shade.

    This is the after shot

    Oh yeah, there was a definate line down the drivers door. Glad you got it sorted although I often wonder why they don't do it like that first time round.

    I had a repair done to my rear N/S door and it went back in again for them to blend it, trying to do it on the cheap I reckon.
