I'm looking to get my '93 Kileuea re-painted and the sprayers have asked for exact details of the colours. Does anyone know where I can find out this info (I think they want some sort of colour number)?

Thanks for the replies.
It is the red and silver one but I have no idea what a RAL number is or how to get it.
Can anyone help.

Go into a trade paints shop / engineers merchants and they will have RAL colour swatches freely available. I reckon you'll struggle to get a good match with RAL though.
If you know any graphic design / arty types you should borrow a Pantone book, this will ensure a better match and any spray shop worth their salt could match to pantone as well as RAL.
Being metallic it's gonna be a hard match though!
