yellow paint problems

I don't know if anyone has seen this on line anywhere but...
My friend who works at the local dealer tells me there has been a problem with color matching between the bumper covers and the rest of the car. They have one currently sitting in thier back lot waiting for Chevy to pick up and take back to find the problem. It is only a yellow problem. This car has been repainted by the crew sent down from Canada, but the guy was not happy because it was repainted.....This car was loaded to the hilt! I don't know what else could be wrong but there was talk of giving up on that peticular yellow and change it to something else. Anyone else with a view on this? There has been mention of color mismatching on this site in the past but this is the first I heard something this direct.

needs no explanation

Add CGM to that list. It's VERY discernible in photographs of my car -- almost looks like 2 different paint colors.

It's about the angle of the painted material.
Every panel was painted at the same time. The color is not different.

Some people are having them do blending. I'm glad I'm happy with mine.
Saw these pictures on line somewhere.
The same color sample at different angles.






You gotta see Jack.

That's nice and all but that doesn't explain the visible difference from the hood to the top of the nose; those surfaces flow along the same lines (in the same plane, well almost), but their reflective properties are different. The pigment may be the same, but the materials used in the paint aren't... at least that's what the light reflecting off them tells me.

I'm glad i got black. It is very hard to match colors like the IOM and the yellow. I am very picky about paint. I would complain if i wasn't happy
