    Don't know about the Mustang yellow - haven't seen it up close - but ANY OEM paint, much less aftermarket, is never matched perfectly when spraying a bumper cover. Nature of the beast. They can blend and good shops can make it almost perfect, but the difference sometimes is the material being sprayed. Plastic versus metal. Not to mention how metallic lays down and how it's sprayed.

    Blending factory jobs with any miles on 'em is even harder, since no matter how perfect you think your paint is - if you drive it - the color is almost always going to be a bit different.

    And before you start comparing spray out cards, make sure you are looking at your car's paint AND the cards in the SAME lighting / conditions.

    Good luck. I've been there and it sucks, but a good shop will make you whole again.

    that looks good, how much did you spend doing that? Also, after you installed, do you notice a big difference?

    On a friend's suggestion, tried this stuff the other day:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JOVJKZW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It was cold and I didn't even clay the car - so it would look even better. Just a quick wash and applied this stuff as directed. I can't believe how it deepened the shine and dew / water / crap just slides off the paint. Even after condensation / rain the other day - no water spots anywhere.

    Here's a crappy night pic from my phone resize3.jpg

    Looks great Bill. Good job.
    Did you take it out yet to see if it worked?

    I spent most of Saturday getting a layer of Cquartz on my car. Today I got to see how it handled the rain.

    Looks good what size bottle Cquartz did you buy? Would you buy the 50ml bottle?

    Thanks [MENTION=17124]Stage_3[/MENTION], Haven't checked it out yet. We have the before install test with a decibel sound meter and when the weather clears up we'll check it again. Don't know what the meter will show but I'm hoping it reduces tire noise from the rear a little bit.

    Thanks, guys.

    I was planning on getting matt black stripes until I called at Big Worm and saw the new Dark Cherry material.

    I bought the 30ml size of cquartz. I’d say I used 3/4 of the bottle. At the same time I also applied a coat of McKee37 glass sealer to all the windows.

    So far pleased with the results.

    I go through touch less when it's just way too could to stand outside. There is no issue with them. They have lasers that figure everything out before it starts and then it does its thing. It only uses high water pressure. There are no brushes or anything that touches your car. Most car washes will have a sign that specifies if it's a touch less or not.
