If this body shop is asking you for the paint code on your car, PULL IT NOW!

How can they call themselves a repair shop if they can't figure out what the code is and where to find it.

There is a guide that the shop should have. Its called Mitchells. Also, find out if they actually mix their own paint. If they don't you may have a color match problem. They may need to blend the fenders to match the front cover. This is not normally done because they are 2 different materials. The shop will tell you it needs to be done but that may be to hide the poor color match they are getting.

The less you mess with the factory paint, the better.

I'm sorry but your post scares me.
