Hi all!
Theres a car I'm looking for that has a slightly damaged hood and I have found an OEM replacement Im willing to buy. Now the tricky part- the color is muriwai white which is a super exclusive paint color and was planning on bringing it to McLaren Tampa. Any thoughts on the work they can do? And how much could I estimate this cost? Thanks guys!!!:D(y)

Idk about McLaren. But it’s worth talking to some reputable body shops that specialize in high end vehicles. They might be able to use that camera that finds the color of paint and generates a code. I got a bottle of touch up like this once and it matched the car. If it is just the hood, you might save a lot by going third party. Of course, if they are not McLaren certified, whatever damage or problems they cause may not be covered by McLaren.

In Germany I was told McLaren has a contract with a specialist paint shop which is certificated by them and gets all the info on colors and layers and so on by McLaren for body repairs ... I would maybe directly ask your dealer service rep. about such thing in the USA before doing something trough an independent which might not match 100% ...

Better idea, just buy a carbon hood and not worry about the paint matching. It will look cool as well.

I wanted to suggest a carbon hood as well. Don’t know the difference from the primed hood.
