Delphi Green L99A

Just bought 74 914 w/ 12K. It is original paint except one door. It doesn't match well. Delphi green is over 50% clear. It is going to spray out very translucent. I need to know what base color or primer was used at the factory so I can get this absurd color to match better?
Was original paint acrylic enamel?

Delphi Green

Thought it was a 12K car but turns out 18K documented miles. Always stored inside.
Here are some pics. Need to match this crazy paint on a few spots.

LOL, even the dog is afraid of that color!

find a spot you can remove a little paint to observe the primer. Delphi or Ravenna Green both look great as widebody cars.Nice find!

Sure is dusty, but if only 12K miles (not 112K), thats a real nice find. Any idea why the door paint wasn't matching to begin with? is it a 1.8 or a 2.0?

It has 18K. Yes it is documented. I got from original owner. Never touched since 83.
Bicycle fell on door and rear tire wobbled the fender . Only thing that will be done is paint match the couple of areas.
Leading to my question:
What color primer or base is under L99A Delphi Green. The paint is over 60% clear.

Okay I think I have this Delphi green paint figured out.
I found a paint code sticker in door jamb that says(pics soon):
TWO STAGE PAINT
L13M SATURN YELLOW

The build plate on car says L99A Delphi Green.

While cleaning I found a chip in the paint revealing a yellow base or primer.
With this info I am certain that the base color is SATURN YELLOW under the very transparent DELPHI GREEN.

So I shot a test piece and the Saturn Yellow is a flat base that matched the chip on car perfectly. The Delphi Green is very tough to match. I need less green and more gold on the next test shot.
