Do you have to repaint the whole car if it has a pretty side and you only want to paint the ugly side?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The front was ruined in a crash and is a
disgusting black color, when the doors and
the trunk and rear panels are a glossy black
with racing stripes on the trunk, can I make
the front look the same without repainting
the rear?

Depends on how good the Painter doing the work can match it. Talk to a few body shops in your area for some estimates.

That sounds like the damaged area was just primered and never finished, it may need to be sanded down and reprised if left too long as this will add to the cost of the paint work. As this is a classic, check with some of the car clubs in your area for a good paint shop that specialize in classics. Good call Tom on the estimates.
