    It will, and depending on the wax/ sealant you use will just make it that much more noticable........

    P.S.--------Blue starts from a form of purble

    Well I'm not sure I understand the question....there is no specific clearcoat for specific colors, clearcoat is just clear paint, you just match the clear to the paint system, not the color. And wax does not change a color.

    Unless I misunderstood your post altogether and in which case I sound like a smartass.

    So what's going on, are you painting something NBM and having trouble? If you use a poor quality clear it may have a yellow tint to it and distort the basecoat. Keep in mind there are a few variants for the color Navy Blue Metallic. Help me help you and give me more info.

    I have a primered black fender in need of paint. I am half way tempted to go buy one of those ebay already painted fenders for 250$. Anyone have any experience with those?

    im confused . . . are you concerned with the paint not matching?

    the purple hue is in the metallic of the blue i believe. I painted my 80 formula this color and sometimes it just looks plain purple. This is because it wasn't Dupount paint it was Omni.

    Yes, I am concerned about the paint not matching. But the company on ebay asks for specific paint code from door. It should match up pretty well I assume.
    Give or take the years the vehicle has spent outside getting faded.

    The paint will never match perfectly. The only right way to paint a fender and have it match the rest of the car is to blend the paint into the door. Then the color difference isnt noticable.

    SOMETIMES you get lucky and the difference isnt noticeable except for maybe in direct sunlight
