Default Just got the F back from the body shop looking good with its new wheels

wanted to show off some pics with the newly refinished wheels and some fresh paint... took three weeks to get it all finished up but it looks great.

Yep different color for sure. Try parking your car in a shade during the day and look at it in a bunch of different angle, and I'm sure you will see the color different.

Are you sure the front and rear passenger doors are the same color? Like others have said, it doesn't look right. It is definitely darker in the front, and I doubt that's a lighting or shadow trick because the color difference is so defined right at the doors. The wheels look good though.

I agree with everyone, they didn't do a good job on color matching... Need to try looking at the vehicle in different shades and lighting. I would definitely take it back and have them fix it!

So i brought it back this morning and they said they used a lot of blender on the front door because it was coming out blochy, they were very unhappy about it but they are going to schedule me to repaint the fender and two doors

I noticed it right away as well. That's good news that they didn't try to push you away.
The wheels look great.
