Colour codes for GRP

Hi

Does anyone have the colour codes please for self coloured grp bodywork for commonly used bright red - what I would think of as 'Pillar Box Red' - and British Racing Green?

I want to make some grp bodywork in pillar box bright red that is the same colour as 1980s Crossflow Caterhams (and Westfields) and want to know what RAL (or other?) code to quote for gel coat at my friendly fibreglass material supplier (Allscot).

Colour as: https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1244922
(and I am building a Locost inspired by such a car, with clamshell wings, basic bench seat black seats, unpainted alloy panelling and self-coloured not painted grp nose and wings in red).

Thanks
Mike

You can see all the colour codes here

The red we use on the Furore that you'll see in my pics of any of the more recent red cars (which looks very similar to what you've pictured so far as you can tell on a monitor) is Masons paints Ayres red 503, I don't think it's identical to any Ral colour, but for touch ins I found Hyundai Mars Red, colour code TD was a perfect match, it is very much what I would call a "pillar box red"
