Isnt it more likely to have a 'FS.' number than a RAL?

Be carful with the colors printed from the computer!
The color may vary!
Only the official color charts from a paint store has the right colors ....

A while back I bought an aerosol can of blue /grey paint that was recommend by a guy off the G503 jeep site, it is a can that has been mixed, and it has the following wording, PANTONE 5415C. CELL MATT.
Dont know if this helps ! :?:

LLoyd, The PANTONE no is all that is needed - the rest is CELLULOSE MATT (meaning the make up & Finish). Any decent paint supplier should be able to mix it up. Surely it should be an ANA colour?

FS Colours:

Try this for a conversion using model paints:

Just type in the PANTONE no here to find the shade:
