My car is 919 yellow from the factory

question sherwin williams makes that color for automotive but they have 2 flavors of it,

one is ACRYLYD ACRYLIC ENAMEL "J5 - 4335 "
the other is POLYURETHANE ENAMEL "P5 - 4335"

which one should I have the bodyshop use?

Acrylic and Polyurethane refer to the base composition of the paint.

Acrylic Enamel (Acrylyd is their trade name for it, similar to Imron) would require Acrylic Enamel Reducer, Hardener, and Gloss Agent, all formulated to work with Acrylic Enamel Paint.

Polyurethane is a newer paint than Acrylic Enamel, which is supposed to give you harder finish, glossier finish and survive UV radiation better etc etc.

Each one will have it's own nuances as to how to paint, (PSI at the gun, Viscosity of mixed paint, time to recoat, time to fully cure before unmask and time to reassembly) but, the COLOR should be the same. The finish will depend on your skill or that of your painter and of course on the paint quality you buy.

FWIW
