I know it will be hard to look at the damage , but enjoy the car now & drive it in summer, with such an extensive rebuild, you may find after its on the Road other issues may come to light that you would like to change & you could schedule this for winter.
At a car show I had some idiot Knock over a post & dent the front guard very lightly, I have learnt to live with this. I'm not saying you should live with you door. I would have kept pursuring the windscreen company & make them paint the car. They would / should have insurance & this may teach them to take a little more care in the future. The small claims court would handle this with very little effort on your part. You still have this option.
Regarding matching yellow. When we painted my coupe over 10 years ago. We first painted the out side, then decided as the rebuild went on & the standard kept getting higher to detail underneath, using the same painter & some of the original paint the colour is still slightly different, when later we repaited the engine bay & same problem. The differances are very minor & the untrained eye can not pick it up mainly because they are differant areas of the car. If we had to paint a door, I no we would probably end up painting the hole side.
