I dont need to respray my whole car if i get some extra exterior parts do i... e.g. side skirts, front bar, spoiler....

Im just worried that if i get em painted the colour of the car it might look brighter then the rest of the car?

If the painter is good enough, then no.

I had a new back bumper put on mine after i got rear ended, and you cannot tell the difference at all (not under any different light conditions or how dirty/clean it is)

The rest of my paint is 11 yrs old!!

I had to get the right rear quarter fixed and resprayed, and a new bumper and respray, and you cant tell the difference in the colour compared to the rest of the car. I decent panel beater will blend the new panels. Only thing is under certain light you might see swirls etc on the old panels and not on the new ones, but its not worth a complete respray

OK well here's a question. On the back corners of my car (under the tailights) there are some small dings and I have been quoted heaps to knock them out due to their location.
I was going to bog these up. Will a painter be able to spray over the dings and blend in with the existing paint on the SAME panel?

Usually they will fully spray the damaged panel and blend into the adjacent panels.
