I am sending my valve cover and plenum to a place to be powder coated but I have no idea how to most accurately match the powder to my car's body color. There is a RAL chart that lists available powder colors and I can kind of eyeball it but I need to know if anyone can cross-reference a RAL chart with the Glasurit or PPG paint codes. The colors don't need to be a perfect spectrographic match, but I would at least like them to be close.

RAL Color Chart

Looks like Zinnoberrot is a 3020 or a 3027

Thanks folks.
