Default Were the bodies and Saleen bumper covers painted the same color?

My Saleen XP8 looks like there was some pearl in the white paint for the bumper covers. Of course that doesn't mean a previous owner might not have painted them a little different color.

You may just see the colors as slightly different, the paint on plastic bumpers will always look different from paint on metal. If you look at almost any car, look at the front bumper and then look at the front quarter panel, you'll see a difference in color. It's just the materials the paint is on. Where I work, I see this every day, especially on the new ford explorers in pearl white.
