No, you have to have a professional match the faded paint and blend it into the surrounding panels.I just recently had my door painted, but now since the rest of the car has faded clear coat, I got this shiny door.
Is there a way I can speed up the "fading" process for the newly painted door to match the fade of the rest of the car?
You could sand the paint with a Scotch Brite pad. It will never match though. You'd be better off polishing the rest of the car, and making do with whatever you end up with.
Anything you do to the new paint will dull it somewhat. You could start by polishing everything, then hit the shiny panel with heavy duty compound to dull it up more. Or just wait until you get some dust on the whole thing.Yeah the color is ok, but the clear coat is a bit too shiny. I know I won't get a perfect match, but it just looks a little off. Is the pad good to dull the shine a little bit?
