Carrara white to powder coat (RAL code)

Hi.
I have a Carrara white 997 gt3, and want to powder coat my roll bar and my track wheels to the exterior Paint color.
Do someone know the RAL code, that is similar to Carrara white?

Thanks Terje

The two closest would be RAL 1013 (Oyster White) or RAL 9016 (Traffic White). Neither are perfect. You would need a custom colour for a proper match, which would unlikely be feasible for your batch size. That said, my Forgeline's and Roll bar both came with what I believe to be RAL 9010 (Pure White), and while brighter than the Carrara White of my 7.2 GT3, I'm okay with both, although definitely more noticeable on my track monoblocks, than on my 3 piece wheels or roll bar. I would suggest sampling all three against your car before going ahead, unless someone here has already done this, and can better advise.

Thanks for your replay. Do you have a picture of your car with the white wheels?
Thanks Terje.

For what it's worth, here are both the Forgeline GA3R's, and GA1R's on the car. As I mentioned, I can live with them as is, although the colour difference is more noticeable in different lighting and slightly more on the monoblocks over the 3-piece. An HDR photo a friend took really made the difference pop, but I couldn't find a copy on this PC to show you.
