Paint Codes and Paint Job Advice??

When I looked up the paint code for Portafino Red there were three codes. Anybody know which one to use?
Also, recommendations for someone to spray a bonnet and two wing skins(full driver's side)??? Am in Denver Colorado? Phonebook is FULL of Auto repair and painters. (National chain?? MAACO??) Any guesses on the cost?
Thanks...

On a 94 in red you probably want to spend a little extra and get the whole thing painted. It fades and it never matches right.

SVE autobody in Broomfield knows defenders well. I had mine repaired there for crash damage, and they were doing a color change and frame swap on a 110. The LR dealership sends the new LRs there with shipping damage to get repaired.



Its a real high end body shop.

Do you want it to look really pretty or are you going to wheel it hard? If the later don't bother with "high end" work.

I had it done there because the insurance paid for it and I will probably sell it if I ever leave the mountains...

Thanks for the input so far. I just want it done correctly. Good job at a fair price. I love it but it's not a "show truck."

I've had some panels painted yellow recently, and sure, they dont match the 10 year old faded yellow, but I think it looks fine for a defender.
