That's because most (good) body shops won't just paint fenders and/or the sections that are being repaired, they'll blend the paint in with the rest of the surrounding panels. They "blend" the new paint job with the rest of the car so it's not obvious that it was painted, which is ultimately what you want. That's good body work.

To avoid that, I would just get a new fender and get a quote on how much it'll be to paint it.

Hey Beeshabo. Could be wrong, but my understanding is that the rear quarter panel is welded to the body. Might be hard to get that weld looking like the factory bead cuz I'm guessing a robot does that.
