My wife actually likes the Mustang yellow that looks like french's mustard to me . LOL . Personally I think that if a person goes with yellow , it would have to be ALL yellow . Frame, eng, etc. Otherwise....yuck .....JMO

Thanks for the reminder. I had looked at that website last year but had since forgotten about it. Maybe just a little more pearl to really make the Cabernet Red Pearl really jump ? I'll have to talk to my painter and see what he thinks . He was talking at one time about going with a cameleon paint job , but I think it's time may have already past . I think the cam' was more of a novelty, that I really don't care that much for the look of anymore . JMO

Yeah, that is for sure. I like the color it is now and have enough left to repaint it, but I think I will like the Claret Red Pearl even better. I did redo the steering on the car and have to patch where the draglink came through the body any way and there is no good place to break the paint short of repainting the whole side. BTW I put in a tilt column going through the firewall and mounted the steering box on the inside of the frame rail between the radiator and the engine. It drives better with the draglink crosswise for some reason also. Bron (my bodyshop buddy) just called back and said the paint is $35.60 a qt. so I can afford to buy the paint. We are just trading labor. He has $3,100.oo in the 454 with me providing free labor to build it.

AutoGear S/W is not a bad paint line at all. If you buy budget stuff...expect budget stuff. However, their more expensive line is on par with PPG et al.

I would suggest thinking about adding a little silver metalflake or dry pearl to the equation for a custom look and even more pop. Buffing this with Menzerna (sp) and new foam pads will help with the pop as well.

Thoughts?

Check out their friemists and metalics, Titanium Gray Metallic would look great with the red IMO

My buddy that is going to paint it insists on using S/W , since that is what he shoots on a daily basis and also insists on using base/clear on everything he paints. I am just picking out the color and he can buy what he wants to spray . I have always been a fan of wine red metallics . Side note is my wife doesn't understand why I want to repaint it when it looks so good now. I just want it to be a little brighter . Besides, the paint job is free in trade for the 454 that I built for him .

Nice ride ! I think I will be happy with the Cabernet Red Pearl body and Rustoleum Regal Red frame combination. I like keeping the Rustoleum on the frame because it seems fairly often that I find a chip in it and have to touch it up .

Hey guys I finally found my color

The color I have picked is 2011 Hyundai Genesis Cabernet Red Pearl. It has the 'glam' and 'pop' rolled into one color. Can hardly wait to get it painted now . http://www.hyundaiusa.com/build-your...zera&year=2011

Thanks Dave ....That was one good lookin' ride . Time is getting short on my repaint . Gonna try to get it done before the end of the month if my dr. will release me to do some activity . I had my right shoulder ball replaced on Jan. 25th. Also gonna get it (the T-bucket, not the shoulder) recarpeted after the repaint. I will post a new set of pics when all is done.

Leaning now toward some of the wine flavored reds . Can only see up to 2010 on S/W website . May go look at some 2011 colors on the car lots and see what pops . That may be the best way to tell. Have all the big three and most import lots all on the same street and all within 10 min of the house .

PatM I can't really tell the shade of red on the frame. But, if you're considering Victory Red, and want something that pops, consider Torch Red instead. Used on C5 Vettes, has lots of yellow in it, really, really bright. ("Ticket me Red") So long as the paint doesn't clash with the frame.
