Viper Red Paint
 
Hello all,
I am trying to do some touch up of a few small chips on my 95.The original paint code was LRN. Which per the Mopar color charts is now PRN. I ordered factory Mopar PRN touch up paint but it is noticeably darker than the red on the car. The car is all original paint always garaged and covered so I don't think the paint color has changed. I read some old threads on other colors that apparently their were some slight variations in colors with blue cars but nothing mentioning the Viper red cars.

Any of you guys with Viper red cars have any thoughts or recommendations on where to get a correct color match for Viper Red ?
Thanks.

The touch up paint is a bit darker. Not much you can do about it other than do an actual repaint of the area or whole car.

going to a jobber. they will match the color and put it in a paint bomb.

Translate to: going to an auto paint supply store. they will match the color and put it in an aerosol can. Or go online and find a auto paint supplier that has touch up paint. there are a ton out there but you are looking at ~$20 for touch up from online guys.

Try paintscratch also. They can match the factory paint color.
