Dont even concider painting the rest of the car.....tell the cheap as's ,this is what you get for that price ,end of story...it needs BC/CC and to be blended...
heres a quick way to fix the problem.if it bothers you that bad..go back and have another quart of that Omini SS mixed up and get the formula and some extra tints to darkin it up.re spray the panels ,You can even blend the door if you need too,Yes you can blend with SS but your blends have to be cleared...then clear that door and get rid of it...dont forget the other side you'll need to blend that too.
You'll never get an acceptable paint match if you dont learn to tint your paint,they may be able to tint it where you got the paint but most of those guys can only read the formula ....you can also ask if there are any variables listed...If your going to be a painter these are things you'll need to know it's all part of it...if the boss wont spring for good paint,it his rep not yours...dont worry about it...if you want to do better work you'll need to find another shop ....other than that getting cheap paint to match and look like good paint takes experiance its just part of the learning process....
