Ford Hugger Orange

Would I be able to get Rustoleum tinted in this color or will I have to try and create my own mix to get close??

Their orange is probably too orange. You might have to mix.

Mapexgurl is probably right. If you do mix your own, start with white first and then add color and do it in a large bucket. Just mix a small amount first, keeping track of the amounts used so you can match it when you mix the larger amount you need to actually paint your car and mix at least 25%more than you think you will need. If you start with the color first you WILL end up with way too much paint. It is easier to add color than to subtract it. Trust me on this, I know this is true because I have done it more than once Laughing

Sherwin Williams has a product they call "Sher-Kem" that has 70 different colors of which includes 5 different shades of orange. Stop by one of the Sherwin Williams stores and get a color chart, I am betting one of their colors is what you are after.
