Help - how to get purple neon finish.

Hi guys, I just found out about this forum. I think it's great!

Some month ago I bought a '93 rg550ltd in purple neon finish, but the previous owner refinished the body in a dark violet color, leaving the headstock in PN finish.
Now I am trying to refinishing it back to PN but I can not get the right combination of colors.
I know I need a red base, because I can see it by the original finish on headstock, but I don't know what color I need to overlay the base coat.
I tryied metallic blue, metallic purple, metallic grey + purple, metallic grey + blue... but I could not get the right tone at all.
I'm using spray cans because don't have space for any other devices such like conpressor or spray gun.
There is someone who already did it or knows how to get it?
Thank you.
