So the body lines are our friend and can be used to make colors match where they don't want to, Even the same paint from the same can will appear different from paint session to paint session with all the variables involved, like gun distance,angle,adjustment.pressure,reducer,air temperature,humidity,day of the week,time of the year,,the list goes on [/end drama]

Not one to leave this project undone,

The foam tape was moved to the top bodyline on this bumper so the upper most section stays untouched and keeps the factory orange peel and color/texture (appearance) as if nothing ever happened (pre-collision condition) effect when one walks up to the trunk...

When polishing along the tape line the foam is removed and a couple passes with the buffer clean any " stray spray"
