Default Road Salt Absolutely Ruined Drivers Side Door

Hey guys. So, a few moths back, genius me left my '96 Grand Am parked in the street overnight and the roads got slippery. So salt trucks drove by completely covering the side of the car with salt, and even after washing, completely ruined paint. My Grand Am is a tan color but from research I think the color name is "Light Taupe Metallic"?? Correct me if that'* wrong, but would anyone know where to buy that color paint? Or is there a company that replicates old paint colors by any chance? I know I could easily just paint the body a different color, but I like the neutral tan color, and would prefer to not have to pay for an entire body spray.

Thank you to anyone who can help

On your spare tire cover, you should have a white sticker with a a bunch of 3 digit codes on it. At the bottom look for BC/CC U#### That stands for base coat/clear coat and the U#### is your paint code. Take that to any auto paint store and they can usually mix it for you and put it into a spray can.
