Default Orange

Looking to get a new body soon, and am curious what spray on paint would come closest to this color:

I already have a Lotus Exige painted Pactra Fluorescent Orange. But I want the next car to have a much darker orange.

Default RE: Orange

I would get a piece of scrap lexan and maybe shoot some pearl down first then back it with competiton orange then back that with black. The black should darken then orange but the pearl will give it that nice shiny look. Dont use too much pearl though.

Default RE: Orange

I've got your orange man.  It's $10 for 2 oz ready to spray... it's automotive grade paint... SEM (Color Horizons).   It is that paint color... not close, but a match.

If you want some let me know... I can send you the paint concentrate, or Ready to Spray.  You will need an airbrush to apply it.
