Will I need to repaint the entire side of the car?

Like title says. I scraped up the painted plastic rear fender flare on my black 2013 Sahara with 2100 miles. It needs to be sanded and repainted. Will the body shop need to blend it into the door or can I just leave the fender with the shop and paint the fender?

You should just be able to give them the fender and they will repaint it according to the paint code and shouldn't need the body to blend it but I hope I'm reading your question right.

Yes you read right. It's the painted flare directly over the wheel. Each wheel has one. The Sport models have unpainted flares. The Sahara flares are painted to match the body.

If it is a gloss black flare then it should match up nearly perfect. Non metallic black is one of the easier colors to match up. I have a Gecko Sahara and had my bumper applicques painted to match the body color. I took them off and dropped them off at the shop...they are not a 100% match, but you really have to be looking closely in the right light to notice the difference. Black should match up very well, near perfect.

My neighbor used to paint cars. He looked at it and said what you said. He also said that because the flares are plastic and angle away from the body it won't have to be 100% perfect on a jet black non-metallic car.
