How can I paint a fendor on my Jeep grand Cherokee

My car has 20000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. There are several ways that you can accomplish painting just one panel. It really depends on your level of experience and how you feel most comfortable performing the task. You can start by removing the entire panel if you choose. This would make for a lesser change of getting excess paint on the rest of the vehicle and having to blend it in. If you do not wish to do so, you can tape off (or other way of covering) the panel’s surrounding areas to not get paint on them. The next step is to choose the type of paint that you want for that piece. If you are trying to match the color of your vehicle, the best way is through the manufacture’s dealership or professional paint company. Then depending on the kind of paint you choose, there will be some prep work that needs to be done so the new paint will stick to the old. You may contact the service department with any further questions regarding help with this project.
