front bumper paint popped

As stated. I do not want to repaint the whole thing so I am looking to cut out the popped out area and do some touch up. However, the touch up paint (A52 space grey) is much darker than my car's color. How do I make it lighter?

Garage List
Go to a panel beater and get them to make you a bottle of touch up based on your paints current colour.

Colour match

You'll probably have to remove the bumper to get to the edge to seal the paint up properly or it'll peel again.maybe try a mobile paint repair company.

There are so many variables for this... No point asking someone on a forum.

Do a Google search around your area and call various places for estimates.
