Your paint code is in the glove box and down near the bottom of the tag sticker. It will have a "w a" number which will be ''wa 973 bc/cc'' as a example. It will take more than a few rattle cans to completely paint a used hood evenly and you have to be really good with it or it will look like s@#t. The rattle can will never match up with the shine of a base/coat clear/coat job. Just go to a few bodyshops to get a few quotes. Doesn't cost anything just to get an idea of cost to fix it versus having to buy at least a quart of base colour/reducer to match it up plus the couple quarts of clear coat/reducer and hardner to paint it.Just go to a Automotive store that sells paint to quote you on the paint to see which will be the best way of go about it. Hope this helps.
