Re: paint drying darker when sprayed

You will find that no matter what colour your car is, if you go edge to edge with a freshly painted panel it will always look different. Paint codes have many variations of the shade, even though it is Blue it may still be the yellow, red or green shade of the colour.

The only way to realisticly get rid of this would be to fade it into the corresponding panels. So say you were painting your wing, you'd need to fade into your door and bonnet to take the eye away from the direct difference on the panels.
