Attempting to color match.......

Post by DarkAngel on April 5th 2011, 8:42 pm

Well here is my dilemma. I am wanting to match my cars color ( Milano Red ) to an Ace Hardware brand enamel paint. I went and we attempted to make a quart to not come as close as I wanted it too with color matching. The color matching machine would also come up with almost an error and state that it will only come close to the color. We tried adjusting it but just couldn't come close. I have also tried looking for Carnival Red from Rustoleum but I cant seem to find it anywhere. Would anyone know where I could find Carnival Red paint from Rusto? I can only find Sunrise Red or Regal Red but both seem to come right before or after my actual color so I am more that sure Carnival Red is right in between both color as well when looking at the Rusto chart.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here is a comparison. I have already bought and tried both Sun Rise and Regal Red to not come close to my color. I am pretty sure Carnival Red will be a very close match.

Try this, check out Tractor Supply, they sell Valspar tractor paint. It's an oil base just like rusto. You can add hardener to it also which they sell. I have read many threads on other forums of guys rolling and spraying this paint with excellent results. It's only a few bux more then rusto, you can get it in quarts, gallons and spray bombs. It come in 3 or 4 different shades of red. They may have the color that you're looking for.
Here is a link to there site:
