I got my car back from the shop and the only issues are a bad mask line that needs to be addressed and some orange peel that needs to be worked out better. I don't want to take my car back to the shop for fear of making things worse. They already had to shoot three times to get the metallic flakes down right.
Here are the obligatory pix. The white is buffing compound which makes the terrible mask line even more pronounced. Can anyone provide any pointers on how to use clear touchup paint and make this look better?
I saw this video on "cutting a blend line" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LX-rDv8Pv5g
but was wondering if thinning the clearcoat line down like that would lead to faster breakdown or peeling. Since the mask line on my trunk is at a line break between upper and lower halfs it's not as visible on say a door panel.
