I guess if you buy cheap paint. The clear coat is dupont Chroma Clear. The base coat is Sikens. Ofcourse, the clear was cheaper. Also, I had it custom mixed and matched at a local I Car Gold certified paint shop. So, That was a little extra. And it was worth every penny. The color is an exact match, no door fade-in from the fenders on it. I agree that generic factory colors are inexpensive. When you're just painting a few things on the car and don't want to do the fade in thing, (or feel confident about doing it, in my case) I think it best to have an exact match so it looks right.
Also, I just painted the headlights. When I put the lenses back on them I was displeased with the way that the silver looks so much darker inside the headlamp assy. I'm thinking about taking them back apart and painting them with a lighter silver. I'll post a pic of them as soon as I get a chance.
