Fixing a bad spot in the paint

When I bought MG #10 a couple of months ago, there was a spot on the fender that had lost its paint. $50 would buy me a quart of touch up paint. Instead I went the cheap route and bought some spray paint. I didn't really want to touch up an already horrible color. This is the result.

Well, that's a clever way to handle the problem! :yesnod: Looks good. Did you do both sides?

BTW, the blue is too light. :devilgrin:

I just did the one side that had bad paint. I knew the blue was too light. I went to my auto paint store to get some blue paint. he didn't have anything just right, but had this can that was already mixed that he gave me. The price was right, so it is ok for now.
