I really didn't like it a lot when I started but as I finished more and more panels - love it now. And in the sun - it is bright!! That photo above, the car is very dusty and the trunk lid is not adjusted but since fixed, rebuffed with Meguires #2 and polished with their NXT.
As said above - not sure how red would look with yellow, but it's your decision.

And that license plate - a left over from my t-bucket and not valid

That is a perfect hot rod color. Yellow, red, black, t-buckets and pre-35 cars.
