I've just had the bumper, hood and fenders repainted on my 2008 SRT. The hood and bumper match well but the fenders are much paler.... Is it possible to get a good match with the hemi orange Pearl paint?

If all the damage on the fenders was forward of about the center of the wheel, then it sounds like they didn't do there blend on the fenders very. How is the match from the fenders to the door?

To directly answer your question, yes, a competent painter should be able to get the color very close, but a 100% match of the painted steel part and the painted plastic part can be difficult.

It was a complete fender repaint. The obvious difference is fender to bumper but the colour difference is more obvious at some angles than others....

It was likely a basecoat blend with full clear. It doesn't look like they blended the base at all. The only way to fix that is with a repaint.
