    What color is this and does it look good?

    For my stripes I wanted a badass red...however, the color that was chosen looks...not red lol. I've had a lengthy debate with my body man about this color and I see it as orange/pink he says bright red...Since the clear is already set he would have to remove hood, take down paint and reshoot. I have until Sunday to make up my mind on the color...Is it red or is my color vision skewed??

    Well, Comparing it to the red jack stand, what appears to be red calipers, and the red pillar in the background of the second pic, I would have to say it is an orange.

    Is that pic Chevy Victory Red? Because thats def the direction I want to be heading! No orange or pink for me lol. Someone suggested putting pearl in the red while I'm at it....it sounds nice, but since the black doesnt have pearl, would it look funny??

    Looks REALLY Salmon to me. Coralish. Not very "red", as in the typical bold, basic, bright red.
