Since you know what colors it was, I would stick with those, the gray and red.

I too have noticed many all red La's or Lb's, I do not know whats right or wrong, but I do know that the La I have that my Great Grandfather bought new in 1935 is black, all origianl paint too!

Stick with what color scheme it already has if you want to re-paint it.
