Anyone have an opinion about the proper red color (preferably Tamiya) for Kyle Larson’s 2022 #5 Valvoline Camaro?

I did a spoon test and i am leaning towards TS 49, and i compared to the window decals red, which looks a tad more orange-ish, but the car is definitely red.

I don't have a pic of my Salvino's Camaro that I've been working on, but I used Tamiya TS-49 Bright red over white primer. I have the quartere window decals on the car and you have to look hard to see a difference.

I have spent spare time for days decaling the car and still have over 50 decals to put on it! Lots of decals!

Thanks Bill, that’s exactly what i wanted to hear. About the paint. Not about the decals 🥺

Judging from the plastic it's molded in; I think Fluorescent Red would be the appropriate choice.

I noticed after attending the Firekeepers 400 at MIS, some colors appear to be a standard hue, but they are not. The Trackhouse 99 Worldwide Express is fluorescent blue and the winning Harvick car, Busch Light Apple red is fluorescent.
