I have a car that I painted 6 years ago myself with a Dupont base coat clear coat system. I was hit on the driver's side front fender and I am going to have to knock out a big dent and repair about an 18 inch square area. I have the paint mumbers from the original paint that I used, but I know this will not match my 6 year old paint job. My question is how do I get the new paint that I am going to purchase, to match my old paint, so I don't have to paint the whole car??

Good paint supply specialty shops will be able to do a color match if you take in your gas fill cover or something like that as a sample.

One thing you could do is to wet sand the car with 600 grit paper and buff the car out with a good buffing compound. You'll restore the old paint job to match the new paint. Good Luck!
