Body paint color help

I suspect that the previous owner of my newly-acquired '71 CJ5 either wrecked or rolled it. Both the underside of the hood and the left front fender reveal body/paint damage. Please look at these pics and advise on how I can get the front-left hood and left front fender to be as smooth and glossy as the rest. (the second picture reveals the contrast the best) PLEEZE don't say "repaint the whole thing".

Something is still wrong with your link, but one possibility that you may look into is essentially sanding the top layer of dead paint off with something like 1000-grit sandpaper, and then applying a clear coat, etc. Someone with bodyshop experience can probably answer this more precisely, but I know from experience that even a fresh paint job is sanded like this and then buffed to get it perfectly smooth. This won't help if the tone/shade of the two paints are different, but it could correct a difference in sheen.
