So, it looks like they replaced the hood, but there was no (or little) damage on the left front fender? They likely blended the color from the hood onto the left front fender and did a poor job so the blend went to far, meeting the door. How is the match on the passenger side? There, it looks like the fender was replaced and the front passenger door had no damage (or very little at the leading edge) and the color would have been blended back on the door. At the rear of the door there would be no paint, only clear over the whole thing to protect it. This is the norm, and simply called a "Blend panel" (if there was no damage on it). But even if there was a little damage on the front of the door, the color would have been applied just there, then blended back.

What does the color look like at the passenger door to rear door (or quarter panel if this is a two door)?
