cant match paint!

I have a teal mustang and went down to a paint place and they mixed me up some paint. But when i painted my rear panel and hood it was darker then the rest of the car! So I just figured my car was sun faded. So i took a piece off and back down to the paint place. They said they matched it. So I repainted it but it is still darker! Why is this so hard to match

sun, thats why most people paint the hole car when they buy body parts..it could be a little darker than even non sunfaded because it didnt dry? just some ideas.

when they make the paint, did they type in the code off your car? (VIN + your color code?) our computer at work we do that and it figs out how much the tint should be for so many years...

yea i forgot to mention that, some places have a computer that they electronically can figure out what your color is, not what your vin says it is. id suggest goin to a shop that does that because the one you go to im thinkin just gave you the stock paint
