will the paint match?

Hey guys i have a 98 gt. The paint code is E8 which is rio red
Soo anyway the rest of my car looks great but the hood is so faded it looks terrible, i want to repaint the hood but im worried that the hood will then look better than the rest and ill have an un-matching hood again. Will it match, is there anything else i can do? Ive already used turtle wax ice on it several times

Im pretty mechanical savvy but im green when it comes to paint and body work

Red is difficult. You may be able to find a shop that can blend the paint over the tops of the fenders. Just go around to some quality body shops in your area and get some estimates and opinions as to your options.

It can be matched, if your doing it yourself, take your gas cover off and let them match it, otherwise, a good shop can do it.
