    Ok, the quest for me to figure out what to paint my rig continues. I was thinking of keeping it Camo and just buying liner and doing it with that stuff to hold up. Then I thought of doing it black and red original paint scheme. But I found this color...I wonder if it close to the color of the good ol "General Lee?" If so I would have to buy it then the smaller cans of white and blue for the numbers. I thought if this would work...man that's what I am doing! [​IMG]

    Anyhow here's the link, the color is safety yellow, but on my puter it looks orange....tell me what you guys think? Would this color work?

    looks like orange to me, could be whoever scanned the picture messed up though.. I'd check it out in person first. May be they will send you a sample of it? Worth a try.

    Looks really close but I'd check it out first if possible.

    It looks like the color, but I am pretty sure the numbers are black and white.

    I could have swore the numbers were white and navy blue? My little General Lee car I bought from Toys R Us then is not correct! I want a refund. I just bought it to follow the paint scheme! I'll ask Durabak for a sample of that paint to see how it really looks. The light blue looks white and the safety orange looks red so I'm thinking the colors might be off on the site. But I'm telling you if those colors work I'm seriously thinking of doing this! [​IMG]

    On my monitor, that color is a yellow with an orange tint. Completely different than the General which, I think, was Hugger Orange.

    BTW, monitors usually have to be adjusted to show correct colors. Most higher end monitors have this functionality which is important to graphic design people and artists.

    This color is more red than hugger orange for sure. If you are looking for that color orange for your vehicle - I would suggest the dealer. Chevy has painted a few cars with this color from the factory, and should be able to supply you with the paint to do up your truck too!!! Hope this helps!
