Shelby's Touch Up Paint Doesn't Match Well
When I bought my 14 Gray Metallic Shelby I also got a bottle of factor touch up. The first nick was in the corner of the door seal that was there upon purchase but didn't realize until after. It was small and I thought I could touch it up and smooth it out just like I used to do on my Grabber Blue GT and Hemi Orange Challenger. Those 2 cars didn't have a metallicy color so the touch up was only noticeable to me unless pointed it out.
I tried replicating the same look on the Shelby's door edge and the color came out brighter that the rest of the door and is more noticeable than if I let it be. Ended up taking it to a Ford Body shop and they touched it up and they were able to match the paint 10 times better. They said they let it bake or whatever no idea how they do it.
So I have another rock chip on spoiler and I'd like to touch up myself but I need some advice about how to go about touching up to match. This time I used a paint pen from automotive touch up and it is the same result so I removed the paint.
I guess it's tougher to match these metallic type colors as grabber blue was so much easier.
