Red paint to match OEM?

I just picked up some full doors and they are yellow .

I'm not ready to paint the whole jeep yet so I am gonna try to find some paint to match the factory red. I know that I could go by the paint code, but I am hoping that someone on here has already found something that is a pretty close match to the 18 yr old faded paint on it now.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Get a spray can of the right coded paint from a local auto paint place, get it with the clear mixed in....buff out the rest the sides....should look pretty good.

My 87 is red, the ford candy apple red in duplicolor rattle can is an exact match. I used interior paint to match it, outside was to faded.

Thanks guy's. I'm gonna have to spend some time trying to remove the yellow tractor paint that the PO painted them with then I'll probably start with the Duplicolor suggestion since it's the easiest to come by around here.

I found poppy red or Flame red Dupli- color matches my red paint on my 94. I picked them up at Autozone.
