Default how to fix paint color difference

I just bought this ls400 and got a really good deal on it. It's a gold 1996. There are places where the paint looks different.

The drivers door and the hood are more of a tan than a gold but it's faint. It looks like someone decided to polish the car, started on the drivers side door, worked around the hood but when they got to the crease on the passenger side of the hood, they stopped right on the crease all the way down.

I'm thinking/hoping they stopped because it was turning the gold into a light tan color, which I actually like better. If I can find the right polish, I'll keep going.

I'll take some pictures when it's light outside but it might not show up. It's hardly noticeable unless I point it out.

Thanks for the help

It is more likely a repaint and difference in age of paint than polish.
