Re: 2014 Repainted and flake doesn't match!!

My granite GC just got hit too. It was from Mother Nature. She dropped a large tree limb on my right front panel...she didn't leave a note either. Haven't seen it yet, but the wife sent pictures.

I'll get an estimate from the dealer when its in for the brake recall.

I assume you got your paint job at a body shop and not a dealer, not that it matters too much?? I'll see what the estimates are.

Re: 2014 Repainted and flake doesn't match!!

Al,

Does your dealer have their own body shop? Many just take the car in and send it to a shop. For that they get around 10%.

If that's the case, check out the shop's reputation.

Re: 2014 Repainted and flake doesn't match!!

I personally would find a great independent shop vs the dealer. Dealer shops have a built in source of business, independent shops rely on their reputation to survive.

I agree... an independent is better than a dealer.

That color can be matched. The body shop that works with my dealership matches it all the time when doing body work for us and it's spot on

Re: 2014 Repainted and flake doesn't match!!

Body shop shouldn't be doing any "matching". There should be a paint code and they should just get the correct paint.

I was thinking that, but "afraid" to say it as this is not my field. However experience has shown me that in 2014 the shop just orders the correct paint. They no longer play chemist in the shed unless they are painting a custom rod.

Re: 2014 Repainted and flake doesn't match!!

The bodyshops I'm familiar with must be really "old school" then... they still mix their own. I don't think I've ever heard or seen one buy anything pre-mixed.

I don't think they are old school. Most shops mix their own paints based on the paint code. They use the same computerized systems that their suppliers would use if they ordered it.

That's what I'm saying, just in different words.

Re: 2014 Repainted and flake doesn't match!!

I am going through the exact same issue right now. One of my best friends rear ended me and the back gate and both bumpers had to be replaced. The dealer body shop chipped the paint on the side panel, so there is new paint on it as well. When I picked it up it was in the shade so I didn't notice. As soon as it was in the sun it was obvious. They are repainting it now but tell me the 6 variations all call for pearl. They also told me I was the only person out of a 100 that would notice. I talked to a touch up paint supplier and the said the code does not call for any pearl. My claim is through State Farm and they have been helpful getting the body shop to fix it because it is one of their preferred shops, but I still don't have confidence it will be right when they are through. I took these pics at night with a flash...
