No painter I've ever talked to, myself included, has painted the next day without giving the paint a few stirs, first. And if you have a good eye and consistent, natural lighting then you'll notice a difference with the freshly painted panel. Regardless, there was a line, he noticed a difference, and was upset about the poor quality of the work. Stop defending the shop's half assed attempt at paint and stop defending Chevrolet's poor decisions that led them to where they are today.

I did not realize that I was defending anyone's work. Mea Culpa. I likely did not read all of the posts. I am not a painter, but I was just repeating the things that I have heard over the years.

BTW, you said that "No painter I've ever talked to, myself included, has painted the next day..." Just how often do you talk to yourself? But more importantly, how often do you respond to yourself?

Have a great safe holiday.

For one thing, you don't have to take the car where they say. It's up to you where you take it. An hour away? I would have told them to pack sand.
But about the bumper, you're screwed the only fix is to repaint by someone who knows what they are doing.
And I hope you made them use genuine Audi parts. Another scam by insurance companies, use cheap Chinese knockoff parts.

Airgard359,

I know nothing about paint (as you previously pointed out, lol). Just having some fun.

Seriously, I know little about paint.

But, are you sure about the two diff suppliers of paint? This is going thru my mind: Don't they paint all of the body parts for a particular unit of car production at the same time? How would the factory have two 'brands' of paint on the same car at the same time?

I am very curious about this. Please give us your 2 cents.

Ed
