Closer enough is good enough, this is Thailand after all, I am 100% sure if I said the colour didn't match, which it doesn't, its too light, I would have had them repaint it and it would have then ended up too dark.

Past that, the OEM pin stripes have clear over them and they are rooted, so I need to find a thicker pinstripe to cover the old ones and do the new painted panels.

Had to go right through the A pillar after the Thai mechanic proved he didn't understand the concept of a nutsert and made a huge mess of it so to clean it up and make it work myself I went right through the A-pillar into the cabin with a longer bolt and a nut, then silicon on the outside in a hope to prevent water entering or causing rust.

Hopefully you mean sikaflex and not silicon. Depending on the type of silicon you used, if you did use silicon, you could actually cause it to rust. The black sikaflex is your safest option
