When I checked PR8 on google I came up with Chrysler Director Red . Is that right. Looks good.

Around here all of the fast cash/check cashing centers are yellow and red.

I suspect because the color combination is such an eye grabber .

I still think candy apple red over silver looks good, but I suppose these days it would cost a fortune to have done. Red metalflake would look good to me, too (reminds me of the Big T model that hung from my ceiling for years growing up).

The burgundy looks good but doesn't *pop* like you want. That Venetian Orange looks real good. But I've never been a fan of yellow. Probably because I've owned so many OEM yellow cars through the years. They always seemed to come my way- perfect bodies and all- and every one of them I said I'd repaint. And I never repainted the first one! lol

I know this doen't do justice to your nice ride but I thought it may help. I just quickly did a paint job in Photoshop. No detail but at least it's yellow.

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.

Thanks for the photo shop pic. Now I am permanently convinced that I will definitely NOT do yellow . Maybe if it was a topless fenderless roadster it would be okay , but definitely not on my ride. 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 .

Wel-l-l-l-l-l - there is always Electric Current Red - an early '90s Ford T-bird/Lincoln color. This is from my long gone '23

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.

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

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 .

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 .

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?
