    Question New paint?

    Has anyone had any paint work done to their car?

    I ask because while the colour matches am not so sure on the finish.

    Is it because the paint needs to settle and my car needs a darn good wash n polish???

    paint should not need to settle - if its applied correctly it should look fine, who completed the paint job ... is it the old paint that now looks poor or the new that looks wrong??
    if it was a bodyshop repair they should have "blended" the new to old

    Yeah on the bumpers but had lower half of n/s door done and that looks the worst! Just looks like loads of ripples too!

    Dunno if you can tell from these pics here?

    Yeah Im gonna take it back but worried he wont do it much better than he has done!!! Or make it unfixable by someone else!

    What have you had painted?

    It looks like they didn't take anything off just maked up on the front bumper. The ripples is probably orange peel.

    Deffo take it back.

    Try to get a second opinion first before you take it back
    to the guy that did it, you will know if he is fobbing you off ! !
    the colour looks ok in pics, mopping might get the ripple out
    of the lacquer.
