Orange Paint Dilemma

Post by TheGreatNardini on March 27th 2008, 2:05 am

Hi guys,
I'm planning on painting my Jeep Wrangler YJ orange once the weather gets a bit warmer, but I've run into a bit of a dilemma. My goal is something like this:


But the Rustoleum orange seems, well, a little too orange. This is a rattle can job, but it's probably roughly the same color:


Could I possibly get the paint mixed to come out like the first example? Maybe there's another brand that has more color choices in orange? Or am I outta luck here...

Some of the Mom&POP Hardware stores might be able to mix it for you. Or you can contact Rustoleum to see if they can do a custom mix.

If you "browse" to a Interlux Retailer and look at their Brightside Color Chart they offer one color that is called I believe "sundown Buff" kind of a nice tan.........IF one mixed a tad of that "Fire Red" into it you might get just what you want and it would be UNIQUE too.
OR - You could splurge for 3 QTS and get their Red, Yellow, and Buff and play with them until you get it just right.

I kind of did that with the light Blue on my Elky, various proportions until I sellted on 1 TBS LT Blue to 1 tsp Dk. Blue and that gave me a related tint to that DK Blue.

Looks like the first picture is a burnt orange which I believe is achieved through a metal flake. Not 100% sure about that but most burnt oranges i've seen have a lot of flake in them. Dave74 was experimenting with flake but he hasn't been on in quite a while so I'm not sure how it would work out.

My local hardware store doesn't stock many colors in the cans but almost all the colors in spray, but they can order it in. The big box stores would not help, but the mom and pop store was happy to order me 2 quarts of Sunburst Yellow. Only took a few days to get it too.
