Default Candy Green

I just got a Lotus Ellise body for my first onroad car. I actually just got the car today. I have the body and like the color that is on HPI's site. I went to the hobby shop to get candy green and they said it doesn't exist. I said "what about the mini lst and the losi eight", the stock bodies are candy green if i'm correct. So can anyone find this candy green color or something very similar for me??????????? It's for an airbrush but a spray can will work.

if you cant find the color you might try a translucent green and then a coat of regular green. but like one guy said spaztiks make some awesome colors they may have it.

Hm..translucent green is the same as candy green, isn't it? Candy colors are translucent colors so they allow the backing coat to show through. Correct me if I'm wrong though..

Thanks for imput,

I think I will try something else. I found a teal color at a hobby shop and it also looks great. Its in between blue and green. I did find a candy apple green from spaz stix on horizon. I've never used them before and will try it some other day.

It will be teal, yellow,white,black and some red. I'll post it when i'm done.
