Thanks for your comments. You're right; it probably doesn't have to be a perfect match, since I do plan to weather the car after completion.

When Floquil was available, I used ATSF Mineral Red for touch-ups. Now I use Tru Color CB&Q Freight Car Red, but Tru Color doesn’t adhere to plastic or metal well unless you use a lacquer primer first. I brush prime with touch-ups with Tamiya Light Gray Primer in the bottle.
The paint color doesn’t have to be an exact match to the P2K color – close is enough for small details, especially is you plan to weather the car.
I'm currently building a Proto 2000 Series kit, Mather 40' Double Decker Stock Car, CB&Q #50076. I'm using metal (Tichy) grab irons instead of the plastic ones that came with the kit. I'll need to paint the grabs to match the dark red of the car itself, and I'd appreciate it if anyone can advise me the specific red paint color that I need to use.
Thanks for your help,
