Toro Red - Looking for close match

Hey Toro Owners. Hoping someone knows off-hand what a close match to Toro Red would be? Rustoleum/Brand Color #1234 for example....

I got a spray can from my dealer, not cheap by the time it arrived it was $14.xx Canadian, kind of hits the beer fund hard.

I've already sanded/ painted the inside of my chute with gloss black for less friction in throwing snow. Thought I would hit the inside of the Auger area while I'm on a roll. So I don't think the color match needs to be perfect. Just want to hit the gizmo that actually throws the snow. With El-Nino, I'm expecting heavier/wetter snow for my area of the northeast, if we get anything. Been petty warm around here into December. Hoping the glossy finish will help reduce clogging.

Toro p/n 361-1 is "Apple Red" (old Toro red)
Toro p/n 361-10 is "New Red" (new Toro red)

Some have used Rust-oleum Sunrise Red for "New".
POR-15 makes an engine enamel called "Chevrolet Red" thats almost a dead ringer for Toro's apple red and is extremely durable stuff.
New Holland Red is another one that's been used but I can't tell if it's "New" or "Old".


Might be a good thing that it does impact the beer fund as having ample beer and painting don't always mix !!

I always think it's best to add racing stripes when sober and masking never hurts
