I bought it new, it matched. It really doesn't look too bad and is hard to notice unless outside with the light shining directly on it. Past experience tells me to leave it alone. I had a 86 Olds Cutlass that had a factory defect. The person that the dealer hired could not get it right, so I had him paint the whole side, could see the color change as he tried to blend it into the trunk, etc. As to the pickup, I had a similar repair a 92 GMC when some unknown person hit it just above the bumper. He cleared the whole side, paint matched but swirls all over the place. Neither truck was blended into the cab. My wife got spun 180 degrees in our 2002 Grand Cherokee by some idiot, damaged the rear door and quarter panel. The paint was blended into the front door and matched but a lot of swirl marks. In the current case I would rather have the different color than the swirl marks. I have thought about cleaning and waxing the side of the cab. I don't think it will do that much good since the vehicle is inside 99% of the time, and the base clear paint is so good that it does not fade enough to need waxing. Certainly not like the vehicles before base clear was used. (I had an 81 Monte Carlo with clear over lacquer, worst paint I have ever seen). I have about a mile of dirt road when I go to town, and wax is the worlds best dust collector. I might still try it, but I bet it doesn't do much--perhaps the front has faded to a darker color?? thanks for the info.
