If only the rest of my car was worth getting this.

...Interesting that it is primered in black. All of our cars had medium grey primer, does GM always paint replacement body-panels black now? You would almost have to reprime it to get the color-matching right on a lighter car...

A friend of mine has a super clean '95 Chevy K1500 P/U, his dad has one just as nice but a year or two off. Both trucks are GM's Bright Red, but his dad's truck had a darker primer from the factory that year, and it just looks dim somehow, like the paint is always in shadow. Same color-code though. On my '97 Z-24, I replaced the crunched fenders with aftermarket M-3 vented steel units that were black EDP primered in Taiwan, and they came out about 1/2 shade darker than the rest of the car. I am not a body-and-paint person by any means, and I know that there are different shade variations for the same color-code, and the rest of my Z-24 is lightly faded by time as well, but the shade and color of primer DOES make a difference on most/many paint-shades...

Nice find though, luckily the damage to my Teal Indy's right quarter isn't that bad (the top of a tree fell on it a couple of years ago, and put a small dent in the car next to the rear deck-lid, snow cushioned the car from being damaged beyond that), so I should be able to fix it rather than replace it. I doubt he will sell the quarter for that price though, most people with these cars won't pay that much even for NOS...
