I know the colors are yellow and red but I bought a can of Sun Yellow and it is too bright. I think it should be a pale yellow. Does any one know where I can buy the right shade?

I thought it was black but when I steamed the engine off it was yellow with red valve covers. This looks like some old pictures I have seen but you say the block and heads should be silver with red valve covers. Is that correct for a 1961 Lark 259 V8?
