Reopening this thread to show my repaint. I've tried plastidip but disliked the feel and ease of removal. I then tried a CF vinyl wrap (Not as good as ASAP's) and liked the look but I didn't like the overall quality. Again, I did not have ASAP's version. Tony products are more quality and I love my other products from him. I just used a simple roll sheet and cut to size to try out the look.
At Nationals I parked next to a Brazen coupe with the targa center and they had the surround in Brazen. For me, I liked the match. 1lilndn recommended an online company and I purchased a $20.00 rattle can from automotivetouchup.com and a clear coat.
I sanded it down with 1000 grit, taped, covered and sprayed about 4 light coats of base and 4 coats of clear. I let it bake in the 100 degree sun yesterday and will wait until next week to 2000 grit sand and buff. Truthfully there is very little orange peel to it and may not be needed. I do have a couple spots due to the tape to touch up but very minor. As to the color, the paint can was spot on. I was worried that the gold fleck in the paint was not going to be there and while painting the base, you could not see it until the 4th coat dried. But the comparison of fresh paint to the paint on the car is just right. I'm happy with it and thought I'd share the pics. Not my best camera day since I used my itouch but it shows the results.
Overall the work was easy, a couple hours of time. Mostly waiting for time to cure between coats. My only issue was I didn't cover on the interior side as well and the interior was dusted with some overspray. All was managable clean up but would have liked to cover a bit better. My bad.
