Default 2005 Vue Paint

So, my dumb self scraped my car this morning on my apartment gate and was wondering if anyone had some experience in touching up the Vue's. I've looked around and found some paint on that states it's factory color I just don't know how much I might need or if it is difficult to do. Here's what I did..

Buff it out- it looks like the black paint from the gate- not a scrape.

The top part maybe, but sadly the lower portion with the largest black spot is a large chip. I'm assuming I will need a primer-basecoat-clearcoat for this one?

Yes you will have to sand and repaint the whole door. You might be able to get away with taping off along that contour line just above the chips. The color is sebring silver metallic and expresspaint.com has a decent set and color match. Might be easier to find a junkyard and and swap that panel though.
