    Default Corvette Flag Emblem Color?

    Hello. Newbie here. Recently purchased a 77 and I'm in the process of repainting the original emblems. I found some good info on the net regarding how to do the actual painting--using model paint-- but I was wondering if any of you could help me with the actual color of the "red" corvette flag? I did a test on the rear tank lid emblem using Testor's gloss red and it looks great but the color is definitely off a shade or three. Does not have to be perfect but I'm pretty anal. Is there a touch up paint in that shade of red (from another year) or a specific shade of model paint that works well that I can purchase? I really don't want to try to mix the color myself

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    p.s. Yes, Iím too cheap to buy new ones.

    On my 77, the emblem paint was faded. I took a good photo from a vendor's catalog to an auto parts store and matched duplicolor touchup paint as closely as possible. Looked real good.
