Spoke with Paul Matty parts team on Friday who advised that this has to be mixed specially - does anyone have any advice on best source for supply?

At your local paint shop.

Either get it matched or buy the standard formula. Most can do small touch-up pots or spray cans.
Easy to get these days!

I have a 1963 Sunbeam that is painted Carnival Red-is that the same color as yours? If so many Porsches of the early 1980's were painted Guards Red-which is an identical color and may be easier for you to find. Eric

Carnival Red was indeed a Rootes (as in Sunbeam) colour, No. 39 apparently.
