Paint matching is not an issue......what you want to avoid is "Paint Blending".....(an alternate approved method)...that is where they either visually determine the paint to be good, little fade, more fade and mix the paint generically, then spray the adjoining the end, it looks like a zebra.

Paint matching is done with a laser (camera type device) that they take 3 readings and the computer mixes the paint...they shoot a supplied piece of material, let it dry & check the match to the existing paint. Paint matching should not be an issue.
