    Yes, he would def be doin' it over and I would'nt pay shit for the redo. You asked for red not something close to red. If the painter screwed up, the painter fixes period. Well that's how I see it. Cause that would be the right thing for him to do.

    That isn't any red I've seen. The closest red I've seen to that is the red-orange they used to pain the 91 or 92 Mustangs converts with the white wheels an tops. I paint cars and if i screw up a color like tha i would redo it for free. If I screw up something I fix it.

    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
    LMAO!!! Maybe because I'm a girl he thought I'd like the pinker side of things lol
    And yes they're cell phone pics so not best quality, but its definitely a good representation of the actual color.

    That is NOT Red and if he mixed the color and didn't provide any sample then it's on him.
    I had picked a red and he came up with a different red and said that he believed I would like his shade better. I went with his thinking it was special paint knowledge or something lol. But I agreed to it so I do feel at fault for it.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    you'll want to go darker red so that it doesn't look too "electric" against the black.

    It's not red, that's for sure. Is that your old color that you're trying to match to? Or is that the new color your painter sprayed and you decided you didn't like it?

    I agree, I definitely didnt want a bright color - wanted an unmistakable red.

    It wasnt my intention to match the old color, I had picked a red that was pretty close to my headrests or the emblems on the side of my car (which I didnt know were seperate pieces btw - Not so sure I want to paint those now lol). Body guy thought I'd like his red better which is pretty similar the decal stripes I had previously.

    Let me see if I get this straight, you picked the color you wanted, and he ended up using another without asking you?

    No I picked a color and he vetoed it saying his red would achieve the red I was looking for. I agreed to it so its my fault, thats why I don't mind shelling out the dough. Just want her to come out right

    Ok, well good luck, hope you find what you're looking for. Aside from the stripe color not being what you wanted I have to say the rest of the body looks good, she's really coming together. Congratulations.

    Hmmm...Torrid Red from a GTO would look pretty good. Those stripes are too pale IMO.

    Its costing me $100 for the hood and wing and I buy the paint. If its just black it might cheaper because the stripes need to be taped off. Wing too?
