Yeah, there is going to be some difficulty matching the pebbled paint on the
/34 front panel. I had one place that almost was going to do it for me then
backed out when they found out it was just that one part. I personally
would recommend sandblasting it first then repainting, in case there's any
latent rust (don't see why there should be, but whatever)
Just my two cents.
