What is the correct white for fiberglass saddlebag

I'm repainting a set of bags for my '64 and am trying to dig up the correct white. Is it Birch white like the tank panels, or a brighter white? Anybody got a # or a color name/brand to match?

Thanks again!

Dan

Should be birchwood white. (same as tank panels)
I was having trouble at my local paint jobber getting a correct cross reference for HD Birchwood white (my locals are a PPG dealer) My '64 isn't an exact restoration, just a kind of stock everyday rider. The white on my tank panels and inverse arc on the bags is "2002 Ford Fleet White" a great pure, blinding white and easy to match. I use single stage urethane enamel with a topcoat of concept clearcoat, it wetsands out nicely and polishes up to a glass like finish and is very chip/scratch resistant.
Got a set of BUCO bags to do and will likely go total fleet white, except the taillight "bullets."

The Ford Fleet White is code "YZ" any paint supplier can match it.
