Carnival Red paint help please

Recommended Posts

Hi, my Elite is Carnival Red (IL05), does anyone know if this is the same as Ford Carnival Red?  I'm assuming it isn't...

There's a few marks under the bonnet of my car I'd like to paint, if it turns out it's the same colour I can just nip to Halfords and buy a can.  

Otherwise does anyone know where I can buy an aerosol of the Lotus colour online that will ship to Scotland?
