Hey guys, I'm looking to get my front end touched up (Hood and front bumper). Winter took it's toll on my crappy Toyota paint and I've got chips left and right. I'd like to get them redone to OEM color and get some 3M put on.

I called Kingsway Toyota Autobody and they quoted me $1032 to prep and finish the hood and bumper and blend it all into the front quarter panels. Ouch!

Who does a good job at color-matching OEM paint?

Most shops have a scanner that they will put a paint chip under, and it will determine the paint mixture.

Being such a new car, it shouldn't be hard. Hell, it shouldn't need to be blended either if they get the right paint.

Reflections is great....

You could also try Pat Heard at the Chop Shop Custom autobody and paint. He used to work for Dougs place and does great work.
