I'm building a GGG P90 kit and I'm trying to figure out what paints to get. I'm not doing a straight-up clone visibly but I would like to get the correct orange that MXR uses. Any of you have an idea which orange they use?

Well, is there anything that comes in a rattle can that's close to that?

I'd painted the clone into something quite different from the original. So I would leave a personal stamp on the pedal layout.
In my opinion the original color could be RAL 2003 Pastel Orange.

I am doing something different but I'm incorporating the original color into the design.
