paint ideas for my 97 gt


hey guys im looking for ideas for paint on my gt as the current stock color is fading badly and was wondering if i could get any suggestions?? im looking for something thats real deep and bright red something that pops in the sun or shade.... i have looked into this but im not sure i think in 1993 ford had a color for the mustang called bright red and that looks something simillar to what im looking for but was just curious if anybody could point me in a exact direction on a specific color! pics would be a plus too

The stock color on my car is E9--Laser Red. You can get the original factory color code off the VIN label inside the driver's side door. I'm about to have my mine repainted. Pics to come...

The color you are thinking of was called " Vibrant Red " and it was a stunning red in person but always seemed to photograph as an orange color. It is the nicest color red i have EVER seen on any mustang. I almost bought a 93 cobra that color in 95. I have always regretted not geting that car.

My 96 is Redfire, and I love it. I just wish that it was in better condition, I bought it right out of highschool, and it wasn't the greatest looking car then. That was 4 years ago.
