Default Should I spend the time?

So I decided to paint my OHC. I only wanted to paint the gray part. But now it's two different shades of black.

The thing is, it's starting to grow on me. Should I spend the time to match the whole thing, or leave it like it is

Before:


After:

I agree. Plus all that masking is frustrating as hell.

Yeah! Definitely!!



But no really If it's something that is going to bug you, you may as well do it. It's like cleaning your truck and by the time your done there's one spot that you just some how missed and can't let it pass like that. End up just redoing it lol.
