New, and a question about a color.

Post by Selador on June 1st 2012, 2:07 am


Hi, I'm new here. First post.

I am in the northwest. Washington state.

I have started painting my 1988 isuzu trooper, and the project has been on hiatus on account of rain.


Before I get started again, I hope to find a particular color of paint. And how to mix it from regular rustoleum, if I can.

You know those traffic signs you see in school zones ?

They are VERY bright. They look to me to be mostly yellow, with just a hint of green. And they are florescent.


Does anyone know what that color is called ? And as I said, maybe how I can get close to it starting with something like rustoleum safety yellow...

Thank you.

Very Happy

It is called fluorescent yellow-green. I know it comes in spray cans because that is the color I use to mark my property lines. Smile

Krylon makes it. I used to get it at Lowes but not sure if they carry it now.

The only things I have found at lowes are flou yellow, and flou green. No flou yellow-green.

Now considering just painting my trooper safety yellow, and then using spray can flou green for a light mist, and flou yellow for a light mist on top of that.
