    the best red in my opinion came on the 91-92 Trans Am GTA and it is called
    " BRIGHT RED" no fancy names just as it says. The color code is WA 8774 I believe and is much more intense than Victory Red.

    It is very red, just not the pic I was trying to post. The sun was throwing the color off on that one. Look at the far right side and you get the point.

    It's Salmon

    So, if you want it true red, he's gonna have to redo it. If you like the Salmon and want to have something different that no one else has......... it's a keeper

    Maybe the guy shouldn't be mixing colors! Not everyone does it well. Bring him the color you want. That way you're sure to be happy with it.

    Victory Red is great. Looks good in the daylight and really shines @ night. I painted a 67 Chevelle SS that i also own this color and get many thumbs up. Goes great with black. You won't be sorry. The color you have now looks pink/red. NOT GOOD

    I'm definitely going to have him redo it - not the "salmon pink" kinda girl Looked around today and it's just really hard to pick a color from a 2x2 square in a book lol

    Ha ha... I hear ya!

    He should provide you with bigger 'chips' to choose from. Not just a catalog or color fan.

    I hope you find what you're looking for.

    Did you pick the paint he used? Cuz, he should have given you a sample before spraying the car...

    That is NOT Red and if he mixed the color and didn't provide any sample then it's on him.

    First of all, your pics aren't great....lighting makes all the difference.

    But that said, I would say that color is SOO Far from bright red in your pictures that given any change in light you won't achieve a bright red look.

    Seriously though, all "orange" "pink" comments or shades asside the best way I would describe the look of your current color (In photo #1, thats the best quality one I think) is to use 2 words. It is a "bright, LIGHT" red.
    Certainly there are elements of red, and its a bright color, but its also a very weak light red.
    I can't imagine he would think thats what you wanted....unless you walked in wearing a salmon shirt, or maybe carrying a 3lb dog in your "man bag". lol

    Yes. I would bring the color chip over to it and see if it matches. If not you should not be paying anything for the change.

    Never does photograph right.

    And I don't care for those stripes. Too 'look-at-me' for this guy.
