Default Which black is my car?

I've bought a 1993 black Coupe which needs both wings and some other paint touching up.

Where do I find details of which black my car is, I think there were two shades, of black in 1993?

Thanks in advance

Hopefully be a build sticker in the boot with options codes, should also be one in the service book.

Y9B brilliant black
Y9Z panther black

Z9U Volcano black (but later I think?)

As Andy indicated, Volcano black was only for 1994 and 95 Model Years.

Panther black is metallic and looks dark grey in some lights.

Brilliant black is a solid black.

Thanks guys. No sticker in the boot that I can find, however, it is metallic not flat black.

I bought two paint touch up pens to test and Panther Black it is.
