Color of Red
#1
I want to paint my 71 red but do not like the almost orange tint I see from some bright red color codes. Does anyone have any suggestions for a similar color that will not give me the orange tint?

Thanks for the help!

On my Jeep I went with Chrysler 'True red'. I don't see any orange color in it. It is very red.

Here it is next to a j12 prototype, the picture is fuzzy but you can see the J12 has more orange in it:

Here is a clearer shot of it:

Added pics. I don't know the color code. It was just called 'true red'. That was the actual name.

Very nice looking Jeep! I like the color so I tried to look it up. I found no Chrysler colors called True Red when I sorted the master color list by Name. The list shows True Blue followed by Trumpet Gold. :/

Could it be Tor Red? http://paintref.com/cgi-bin/colorcodedis...25&rows=50

Tor Red looks similar to your color. Here's Tor Red on a 2010 Challenger.

Interesting. I kept the receipt from the paint. I will look it up tonight or I can call the guys that painted the truck and they may have it. It's an 'older' color, like 10 year or so. Of course with a name like 'true red' you will get millions of search hits.

Thanks for the Jeep compliment. It's my other hobby car....

How did it look with the black stripe? The picture is dark. I was worried candy apple would be too dark for the stripe.
