Absolutely. I actually put a fender right next to the cab and looked at it in the sun. They read the same color and look exactly the same, except where the sun is directly hitting the fender, it has a hazy look to it.

The truth is that the only place this will be noticeable is on the fenders when they're in bright sun. And even then, the casual observer would probably just think it's metallic. Or dirt since, as a practical matter, I only wash my cars once every two years.

I bought two gallons and mixed them, thinking that would be enough for a truck. Ended up shooting 3 gallons, but fortunately I had the presence of mind to do the entire front with the first two. The box doesn't ever touch the front.

Much more important at this point is probably that I properly cut and buff it. Some of the drips can only be described as Biblical in proportion
