    it varies...why not just drop by one, and get an estimate?

    well first you need to go to your local paint shop and match up your color to their color charts (they should have a book with tons of colors
    on little squares) a body shop will need this code in order to make you a quote on your repaint job, because the price of the job
    depends on the price of paint.. brand of paint... etc...

    you can get your paint code off the vin plate inside the drivers side door jam.

    If its not the factory color like I'm understanding from your statement then the factory paint code will not help at all. Like everyone else said you'd be better off just taking it to a paint shop and getting an estimate. Their free so theres no harm in checking into it.

    Yeah,

    best thing is to go to a shop and get an estimate for the paint and to fill the holes. But remember you get what you pay for, so dont go to cheap or it will look like crap.
