I find the best way to do it is; Buy the decal you are going to use and then go to your local paint supplier and have the color matched to the decal.

In the new edition of "PCM's Guide to Gas Pump Restoration":

Shell Western Yellow : 50556 Sherwin-Williams paint code #

Shell Eastern Yellow : 50148 Sherwin-Williams

Shell Modern Yellow : 9405 Sherwin-Williams

As always, when painting a pump or lubster, better to take the decal or plate you are planning on using to paint store and have the paint matched to it. This way one ensures that the colors match as closely as possible..........

I wouldn't use those paint codes, they haven't been changed from the first book. I tried using them twice with disappointment.
