    Can you paint a little area of a pearl white Cadillac and not notice?

    I have a 1999 Cadillac Seville. The color of the car is the original Cadillac Pearl White. I had a little damage done to the passenger rear quarter panel and lost a little of the paint. I am now going around to body shops to get estimates to fix the damage. The question that I need answered is can you get the paint to match with out notice to the naked eye? If so how much of the panel or the car do you have to paint to get it to the point where itís unnoticeable?

    My Pearl White Eldo is unpaintable. I have the touch up paint (2 bottles) and it never looks good. Do what you must, but keep the area painted as little as possible.

    That paint is a tri-colour system, isn't it? A basecoat, a tinted clear and then a straight clearcoat? That is how they get the pearl effect. I understand it is a bitch to try and match up - better to just repaint the entire car - and make sure you get someone who knows what they're doing when you get it attended to,,,,,,
