Testors candy apple red is also an exact match. I did my reverse light too when i did it so it would look like the actual mhw/ startec red tails. I wish my ****ing smoked taillights would have actually come as opposed to me waiting 7 months and then going to spazz and get my money back. My cars ass would look so much nicer
