Of course if they can't make it right, you want a refund. If that's not acceptable to them, take your refund now. Any body shop I know of has a lifetime warranty on their paint work. Unless you're taking your car to Maaco or Ealt Schieb, then shame on you! Haha
^This. If the bumper is the only item being replaced and painted, no shop is going to blend panels unless you are paying extra for it out of pocket. Blending panels only occurs when you are doing hood to fender or fender to door or door to door or quarter panel to trunk lid.
