When you guys paint a car you do it in chunks. first the main part, then later the doors, bonnet and boot.....My question is - when you do it this way although easier, how can you get the same results? Different day, different temp, humidity, dust in the air, wind direction - different angle of the gun to the panels, in the case of metallic maybe they don't lay the exact same way. Point being, it won't match really, will it? I understand doing the underside, boot and interior, door jambs and such separate, but the factory paints the whole exterior at one time - why don't you?
