Exactly right, that's why we're charging more since we have to package it more.

You can ask for insurance, we usually do $5 for every $100 you want for insurance. You cannot be 1000000% sure the paint will match because of environmental variables. You can give us your paint code and potentially ship us your tow cover as a sample, but you cannot do it any other way to be perfectly certain.

If you are doing front and rear bumpers, then yes, that would be definitely advisable.
