When it comes to getting stuff painted for it to look good you will probably have to get the quarter panels blended or it will be 2 different colors try to buff it or color sand and buff it. Then when it shines wax it

I have been a painter for 10 years professionally, your best bet is to get the car repainted all over, it will cost close to the same price to have it all painted as to having it panel painted and blended, as said above fresh paint will almost never match the existing paint because there are so many different color variations of each oem color, when u buff the new paint and the old paint the old paint will not shine nowhere close to the fresh paint. Ppg and and dupont and sikkens akzo nobel are some of the bewt paints you can use as far as color and pigment go but is very pricey, if cost is an issue the best bet is to find someone who does it on the side but is very good and just provide the material. I do alot of sidework out of my garage for customers and friends and family, if u go that route find a local paint store and look for either shopline, martin senour, or rm brands paint and clearcoat, they very affordable, and they are great paints. You will save close to or over 800 dollars by doin it this way. Hope this helps, any ?'s just ask me. What color is your car?

Its laser red and i know they cant match paint very well when someone backed into my rh fender is almost pink...drives me crazy. What does your shop charge for a full paintjob? Minus like engine bay and stuff just the exterior. And if i tape it all off and do some of that will it be cheaper? Thanks just want an estimate

Between 1400 to 2000, but that includes the paint abd material. It may help if you sand and scuff the car, and get alot of the prep work done, may be a little cheaper but not a whole lot. Youre basically payin for the painters labor and cost of materials.

Do u know what brand of paint it is, and do u have any local auto paint supply stores around? I would be kinda cautious when buying paint online because its hard to say how good it is, and how long the paint has been sitting qnd how well it is mixed. When you go to a paint store they mix it for you and you can look at it make sure its what u want, paint has a shelf life also, so if something was to go wrong with the paint or some the toners were no good it would suck cause you would be stuck with junk paint, as to buying from a local store there is a guaranteed quality.

I wouldnt worry about the flex agents, clearcoat is pretty flexible as it is, the flex additive is usually used for floppy plastics, like some trim, motorcycle plastics.

Looks like the brand is KEM. Comes with a gallon unreduced base and clear, two quarts of reducer for the base and one quart of the activator for the clear. Its all urethane based I guess. Kit is about 200 bucks.

Ive never heard of it, at a local paint store you can get shopline, rm, ppg or dupont for about the same price depending on color. And you would know for sure the paint quality, i will look up that paint and tell u what i think

Thanks for the advise, I appreciate it a lot. I think I will give it a shot but I'll definitely get it shaken before I use it.

One more question, is the color you are using going to have any metallic in it. If so make sure on your last coat of base u put a fog coat on it, which disperses the metallic evenly, if u dont it will be tuger striped, and also use a medium activator in warmer weathet if not u will get solvent pop

I'm planning on going with a solid color. Probably black.

You mean keyed scratches? If so look on the in side of your drivers door the white sticker there is a exterior paint code which is two letters then go to autozone and in the little bottles there is touch up paint comes with a brush. That's how I was told to do on a scratch it won't be perfect but it's cheaper that way than to do a little scratch on one while panel.

Lol that's not a factory color it's a metallic cherry champagne red and it has ghost flames in it. Factory color is silver, and I would not use autozones dupli color I would just go to a paint shop and get a scratch fixer.
