Re: SEM Paint
given the SEM guy did several spray outs and was not able to match you see how hard some metallic are very hard to match even if you have the "formula" as gun set up and spray technique and ultimately mixing all factor in
I just had some paint fixes done on a metallic color that is a non stock 1st gen color. The shop used a color ID camera and did a spray out on a few cards. 100% nailed the color match.
They gave me the spray out card which had the formula mix 411 printed on back incase I ever need to match paint again
With this said you may find another shops "abilities" to get you a solid match are better than where you have gone and if so once they do have them mix a quantity you can purchase for future use should you need it
My Chevelle is an original metallic "Marina Blue" and this worries me - trying to ever match it if any repairs are ever needed.
Should I consider painting it a solid color instead ? Metallics seem like such a hassle.
