It's A 3 stage pearl.<br>Your paint code is on your engine compartment plate, 2nd line, a 3 digit number<br>All pearls need to be panel painted as they're almost impossible to perfectly match

You mean someone actually painted the hood an entirely different color?<p>(I would not rush to think it was Acura pearl, they could have just screwed up, pearls are VERY hard to match)
