Painted:

http://cgi.ebay.com/2006-10-Hyundai-Sonata...=item19c17f26b8 - Cannot tell the exact color, could be DWB, maybe seller has other painted fenders in DWB

Painted and cleared to match original paintcode:

As expected the price increases as you move down the above list.

i am under the impression that when you paint a panel on a vehicle that you need to blend? especially for metallic paint like my car has.... can anyone shed some light on this if not i would just take a primed fender to a body shop to paint then i would put it on my self. I keep hearing they need to blend part of the hood/door so it wont look off? any help is appreciated!

I'm sort of a in the same situation after my wife got into a fender bender. The front fender has a hole it in. I already replaced the reinforcement bar so the right half of the bumper is sticking out. I've been planning on just buying a new fender cheap online then taking it to a body shop to get it painted since its already to go for the paint.

I've heard this as well and when I had repairs done to our silver metallic Saturn, the repair shop told me they would blend the new paint with the old. I could not tell that any repairs had been performed on my vehicle once they completed repairs. Even under varying light conditions, the new paint job matched the old paint job perfectly. However I would think that if they properly match the paintcode, then the majority of paint issues go away, blending or no blending, but I'm not an expert.

Why not leave the old fender on and take the new fender with you to the shop and let them handle the switch. Since they have to take fender off anyway, no additional labor should be incurred. The only way you could potentially save some labor is to take old fender off and drive to shop without any fender on vehicle.
