I’m thinking about fixing some rust on my cruiser, but my freeborn red is pretty faded. I would get a paint shop to mix colors, but I don’t know how the repainted area would fade differently than the actual body. I don’t want to repaint the whole truck, but I also want to get rid of some rust. Should I color match, or is that a bad idea for the long run?

Try some rubbing compound or some other product that rejuvenates your existing paint, like nu-finish,etc. Start with the less evasive process and work yourself up to what works best. Start in a small spot 1st. I'd bet you could get that back to a nice shine and bring it back close to the original color of the paint.

I asked a similar question a while back.
The answer I got made a lot of sense.
