Default Where to get Missile red Monokote paint?

I built an airplane and covered it in Monokote Missile red. Problem is I did not buy enough of the matching spray paint to paint the cowl and wheel pants to match. I went to order more and the missile red color is discontinued and not available from Tower Hobbies. Tried several other on line hobby companies and I even went on line through Monokote themselves and not available also. Does anyone know if I would be able to get this anywhere?

You may be able to take a sample of the Monokote to an automotive paint supplier and they could mix up some in a spray can for you.

If you do so, first iron a sample of the covering onto a piece of balsa. The color readers have difficulty reading the covering by itself, plus the color looks slightly different ironed onto wood.
