It looks Redfire, but it looks like the entire car is being painted, so I thought it might be a custom color
it is redfire, had the hood painted and blended the fenders, then sanded the entire car and re-cleared(i hated the factory orange peel),then the stripes were painted and again cleared the entire car. color sanded to 6000 and buffed. the stripes look darker in the shade but they are actually lighter, just a.dd a litle sun

Its looking really good, I like the stripes ALOT!! I love stripes that are very subtle.

That came out real nice. Its unique and not over stated. It stands alone from the other vechicles I see on a regular basis.

If ya don't mind me asking, what was the paint job quoted at?
i live in no. cal, and it seems from all the posts ive seen that everything is more expensive here. anyway, $7800.00. i also had custom hood opening grills cnc machined that are way badass. the final pics should be posted by thurs. god, i cant wait.

That looks unbelievable, my car is redfire and I have always wondered what color stripes would look good on it. Now I know. I wish I could afford to do that, it would be in the shop tomorrow.​

$7800:eek: I've done whole paint jobs going all the way down to metal for $3000 well I hope your happy with it. never the less, thats just a lot of money for what your having done. clear coat for top of line **** is about 2.50 per sparyable ounce, and it would take about 100-140 ounces depending on the coats, and how thick it is being applied. it does look good, but I just gotta ask did they provide the lube, or did you have to take it dry;)
