Re: Plastic bumper colour doesnt match metal bodywork colour.

Respray pics

There would have been if there was any difference to the last set I posted, but it is the same and he apperently applied the "lighter shade"

Heh gawd knows what the darker shade would be like!

Thinking on it I have seen clios around with a very similar colour to mine but slightly more choclaty..if that makes sense.
Perhaps that is the hnk chocolate/beige metallic and mine is the hnk sand /beige metallic.

while I think of it and before edit time runs out
first 2 pics are just before respray, you can barely see the damge from here ,the sprayer had polished off the worst of it..the rest had cut thru the paint.

(I was testing to see how the little front mudflaps which I kept from the tigra would look. Too "busy " with the plastic side strip I think, like about 4 different surfaces in a very small area.)
You can see the panel colour diff.

The thing is look at the next 2 pics..a colour difference also but the plastic seems lighter than the metal!. looks like no cure.
nb same car just different wheels on.

Ill just have to take pics or view it from exactly the right angle and lighting conditions
