What is the correct red paint color for a '79 GMC grille emblem? And where would you buy it? And tips for prep/paint process?

I used Rustoleum Victory Red to do mine it turned out great to me anyway. I have heard others using a Crimson Red it's almost an orange- red in color.

OK, I used VHT Victory Red, also called Chevy orange-red. I spent probably three hours taping it off, but in the end looks great IMO. Thanks for the input.
