    Need some ideas for fuel door

    I came out of my Wife's work to find a dent/scrape in my fuel door... luckily it was only there. I went on paintscratch.com and ordered paint. Of course I forgot to check to make sure the paint was a perfect match, until I got it all done.. well it's not a perfect match, which is my own fault so i'll just have to take the 50.00 hit that the paint cost me.

    Anyway, so now i'm trying to figure out some ideas for the fuel door. The car is a 2012 WRX in blue. I had thought about maybe using a grey paint that would match the wheels... also thought about a CF door, but I can't find them for the 2012's.

    Maybe I could do the grey and put some sort of subaru emblem on it? Idk, i'm pretty irritated now after about a week of work, painting, and waiting and back and forth.

    Do they make an after market billet one? But I like the grey to match the wheels then some form of decal like WARNING RACE FUEL ONLY.....or something like that

    I honestly have not found an aftermarket one anywhere.

    What do you think of a carbon fiber vinyl wrap?

    Did you paint the whole thing, or just the scratches?

    GrimmSpeed makes a rattle-can paint that is supposed to match WRB (World Rally Blue) exactly if that is the color you have. If you are PBP (Plasma Blue Pearl, aka dark blue), this wouldn't help.

    Yes, I saw that after I had ordered the 10.00 more paint from paintscratch.com. Their paint has always matched in the past. I don't know what happened, if it was somehow the clearcoat that made it not match. It's supposed to be made so that the base + clear will create a perfect match.

    I'm all for that. It depends on what it would cost. I can do a carbon fiber paint job on the door now for about 20.00 or so.
