Yeah I'm really happy with how it came out. Color matches really well. I wish I could do a clear bra but I was quoted 3 or 4 hundred dollars. And now it's to late.
Best way to find refinish work is to:
Look for trash in the clear/sanding marks/inconsistent texture.
If it's a body panel in question, run your hand along the edge. If it's perfectly smooth it's factory paint. If the edge is rough it's refinish paint. Works 100% of the time for finding paintwork. However, the edge feeling technique wouldn't apply to a bumper. The poster above had a good tip. I'll be sure to add it to my repertoire.
