    Default paint matching

    came back the other day to find that some ******** had left a lovely scratch along the side of my car, of course he hadnt stuck around to give me insurance details!

    Ive had a couple of quotes for the repair, the first was about £700 from ooops and then the 2nd a much happier £330 for cash at a guy who has also offered to repair a couple of other scratches and a small dent at the same time all included in the price.

    My only worry is how would he be going about matching the paint colour? Its a 4year old vectra c in metalic black (looks almost purple under the right light). he has said he will need to blend in an area of about 3 feet by 1 feet and that it will look fine. does this sound like an easy enough job to do? Any advice ?

    really concerned

    I am not a sprayer but I do know this is pretty normal practice, I also wouldn't worry too much with a colour like black. If it were silver I'd be more worried as it's harder to get right. Lets face it, it isn't going to look worse than it does now?
