I agree with your comment , if the person mixing the paint doesn't do exactly right you will notice the diffence againist the rear fenders. Just had my mirror painted and the red metallic was just off a little, you can see it more in the sunlight , it's a little more orangie and doesn't have that vibrant red metallic like the rest of the vehicle.andylibby said:My humble opinion is that it's better in the case of metallic colors in particular to repaint an entire panel or, in this case, the entire liftgate as it can be difficult to get the metal particles in the paint to lay in a matching pattern to the original paint.
I'm a little late to the party on this one........John2010 said:Just took delivery on a 2011 LTZ. It had a small paint chip on the tailgate under the Chevy emblem that the dealer touched up. The paint dried a grayish color. The dealer wants to repaint the entire tailgate. Opinions or suggestions?
This is why I've instructed the wife to never open the liftgate in the garage. We have an older garage, that is barely long enough to fit the traverse in, and the door is pretty low, and the last thing I want to happen is have the hatch opened, and scratch our Red Jewell paint. She knows that if she want's to put something in, or take something out of the back, you keep it out of the garage and in the driveway to do so.crazytalk said:Ironically, I noticed a paint chip in the same spot as the OP on mine a few days after bringing it home. :banghead: I think my wife did it in the garage when opening up the liftgate.
