Mclaren F1 GTR Lark Paint Scheme

I'm finally starting on this project but have discovered a problem. I bought some Boyd's Dusty Rose Pearl and Model Masters Graphite Metallic and have come to the realization that these might not be the right colors.

Does anyone have the Kyosho 1/10 McLaren F1 GTR Lark body? Can you tell me what colors they recommend to paint it? Or any other reference model?

I'm trying to figure out what the two colors are and whether they are metallics or flat colors. I also haven't been able to figure out if the reddish color is more a shade of red or a shade of pink, specifically a hot pink or magenta.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if you have a reference model and can suggest a good match that would be awesome.

I'll add pictures of my progress to this thread as time permits.

I'm gonna get them professional done if push comes to shove. I'm hoping I can find someone who has an Alps printer though since I only need a few. I wish one of the major manufacturers would offer a printer than can print white.

I've seen this image before, unfortunately the color looks almost salmon on my monitor. If kyosho had PDF's of there instructions for their sets I could probably dig through there and see what they recommend for colors.

it's not kyosho. it's made by studio 27 for some unidentified 1/24 mclaren. So the color on the decal placement instructions is only for reference
