Well fella, you got weather beaten paint on your bus, there is a paint coding on the manuf. plate ,you may if u wish ,check it out ,buy some and try and "weather" it prior to application,or for that matter ,after application , you may find that is one hell of a skill thou !? (aint easy!) most repair shops will insist on respraying entire panel (that does make sense )to blend old and new paint on same vehicle is an art form, spraying a panel is reasonably easy ,its the prep that takes sooo much time ,but very fulfilling ,if u like that sort of thing <hope this helps ,best wishes.
