Unhappy Somebody hit my car! I need constructive opinions.

It is a very minor dent in the driver's front fender but, it is big enough to repair and paint the fender.
Talking to an auto body shop they can matched the paint to the side of the panel but since the top (throughout the car) is starting to show the age of the vehicle (weathered paint) there would be a noticeable difference. If I paint just the fender (about $800). How would this affect the value of the vehicle? or should I paint the whole vehicle for 3 times the amount of the repair? Keep in mind this is a 1986 vehicle which I plan to keep for another 1-2 years. By the way, the insurance is only paying for the repair and paint of the fender.
