Having trouble finding the "right" shade of red i want.

Ok heres the deal. ive been looking through several color books etc for this red. only place ive seen it is on the cover of jon kosmoskis book "kustom painting secrets". its almost like a neon redish orange color but at the same time you can tell that it is not a neon. its a solid color and i know its not a stock color off of any car ive ever seen. since its kosmoskis book i would think that it would be a house of kolor product but none of there reds in the chart come close.. has anyone seen a color this book or a color that im describing? this may be a very vague or even one of those dumb questions but someone out there may know what im talking about.

Sounds like you are describing Porsche red. That was the politically correct color to paint your car if you wanted it featured in a rod mag in the late 80s - early 90s. Seemed like way over half the rods at a run would be Porsche red. Very bright red leaning toward the orange side of the spectrum. You will be amazed when yo start studying reds trying to find the perfect color that there isn't a pure red! They either lean orange or purple in your eyeball.

This is the book. The picture really dosen't do it justice.
It's a VIBRANT red.
Like a bright red that's about to turn orange.

The red they used on Boyd C's '55 was about red as it get's.
He even had it named after him. Boyd Red.

I'm going by the paint store tommorow and will ask my guy if he knows what it is as they are a HOK jobber.

mrcleaner6 would probably know,he's really up on HOK products.

I have the same dilemma with my Rancharo,WHAT red???
I'm thinking of a "lighter version" of Kandy Apple Red of my own.

yea i know what you mean also.. ive already looked for a red red that was kandy for another project.. its prolly possible with a little bit of mixing but i just havent gotten around to it. most kandy reds are more on the maroon or wayyy to dark red side.

Seems like that red bike by Periwitz [spelling?] was Mario red or Andretti red.

If you start with a orangy red base and apply candy red over it you might end up with the effect you're after. Ford had a true solid red tricoat that glowed fairly good a few years back- using the transparent red from that formula over the right color base might also do the trick. Just some ideas, Bob

I believe that red is slightly more red or darker. thats the color he used on the discovery channel bike. but this red is from an older bike.

That bike on the cover looks like the one Dave Periwitz did for the biker build off, if it is then Rosewood is right. This is a special mix for Mario Andretti,he had one of his race cars painted that color and if my memory serves me will, I think Periwitz had to get permission to use it. Do a search on Periwitz and then call him and ask what color it is. I would check the spelling of his name I don't know if I have it right. Good luck

No this book came out long before Dave's biker build off. The andretti red is darker. The inside cover of the book says that the bike was painted with an HOK single stage but the only single stage red they have is kosmo red and its darker as well. maybe its special mixed by dave or his painter but this color has to exist elsewhere i would think.
