    Showing photos of your car doesnt really help because of all the reasons about showing photos of Reos to you. I think if matching is important the only really good way would be to either find someone that has one and its in your hands or order a door to see if its what you are looking for.

    Yeah, someone asked for pics, so thought I'd oblige.

    I'm beginning to think the easiest thing to do would be to order a black one, and ask if I could get a door in the raw, then take the door to a collision repair center and see if they'd be willing to paint it up by paint code.

    Could you buy the touch up paint for your car and paint the door yourself?

    I'm afraid that I wouldn't do the REO door any justice, and it would look like crap. In the case of painting, I'm better off taking it to a pro.

    and EXACTLY why I ONLY shoot RAW, don't care what I am shooting! Only I decide what data gets tossed... or that's what I tell myself anyway....lol

    For those that don't know when you take a jpg pic, the camera acts as a dark room and applies white balance color correction and other things to the photo it capture and then throws out a bunch of data collected. For camera's that can take a raw photo, no processing is done in camera and all data captured by the sensor is placed in the file. then Photoshop, Lightroom etc. can be used to process the photo.

    On my camera, a 21meg raw file is compressed to 6 meg jpg. so the camera throws out 14 meg of picture data if it does the processing.

    I have the metallic red door and it's VERY hard to get an accurate color image of it. 1st the metallic parts don't show up as well.
