The paint shop where I took my '58 Christine Clone only has paint color/code reference books back to 1985. As such, they couldn't find 1983 "Royal Red" which is what I understand to be the color that was used to paint the '58s in the movie "Christine". My son and I tentatively decided on 1985 "Flame Red". PLEASE let me know if "Flame Red" is the same as "Royal Red". The painter at the shop told us that sometimes auto manufacturers keep the same colors for up to ten years, but they frequently just change the name of the paint color from year to year. My car won't be painted for at least a week, so I have some time to come up with the exact paint color/code I should have her painted. I really could use some help here. All info and advice will be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!! THANKS!!! Jim
