Paint Question

I don't need anything painted but I was wondering, when people have things painted on an individual basis such as hinges, capping, etc, how do you get it to match? I know you go by LR color codes, but isn't every batch of paint have some variances and if my truck is 15 years old I would assume there is a fade to the paint so things won't match if you just go by paint codes. Don't you need thing blended? If you do hinges is the paint code good enough?

Good question for Mike

My new paint, even from different sources, is pretty consistent. The 15 year old paint is faded, but I didn't want to try and match faded paint, so there are a couple shades of yellow on the truck.
