Collision damage. Advice needed
The front passenger door of my 2012 Frontier. A girl I know who works at a body shop says this is easy. She wants to paint the bottoms of the front, and back door not going above the crease. She says I will not be able to tell once its painted, and blended etc. I would rather live with the blemish vs having paint that doesn't match.
What do y'all think?

Collision? That'll buff right out....
Most places would fix and paint the whole door...

A good body shop will make the paint match. I would have it fixed painting the whole door may make the matching and blending more difficult.

Ask the girl if you can see some before and after of their work. If it's as good as she says go for it.

I think I would trust them but explain you will hold them to their word.

Grind it down, filler, primer, paint/clear done.

In order for it to be done correctly, the entire door needs to be prepped as well as the adjoining panels so that color and clearcoat can be blended onto the adjoining panels. The quick and easy fix is to paint up to the crease and hope it looks good.
