Default What color is the General Lee?

ANyone know what the right orange to use is? I don't have an airbrush so here are the 2 I have to choose from. Competition orange, or Fluorescent Orange. I think the competition, I know the sticker looks red but the one on top looks orange, fluorescent orange just seems too bright. Here's my T with flourescent orange flames.
Or is there a different one to use?

The General Lee is Hemi Orange. Testor's has the Hemi Orange paint available in cans for models, but it is NOT safe to use on lexan. Competition Orange in the lexan paint is probably going to be the closest you'll get out of a can.
