I just took the tape and stuff off. It matches Pretty well I think! Its obvious its new paint, but I think I just have to go at my original paint with some cleaner (the cars pretty dirty right now!)

Thanks

So far everything has held up well, even the paint on the inside of the mudflaps. A huge rock did hit my mirror though and put a nice chip in it it really dented the plastic too, so its not like the paint is weak.
