I remember the lower body being the same School Bus Yellow/Grabber Orange color that was used on the Holly Farms car but the restored car looks lighter and that's what Mike used for the decals. I need to see if I have a spare set of Holly Farms decals to see if the numbers are darker on that car, I might need to repurpose a set.

I have a Cady sheet for the #11 City Olds with the yellow lower body printed on the sheet.....right or wrong very close to Camel yellow.

Great call there, Russ.

Just did a test spray with the TS-56 orange and it's an exact match (as far as my eyes can tell) for the Fred Cady decals I'm using.

BTW, there's no reference to McLaren on the can. But a Denny Hulme-CanAm toned light flashed in my brain and I gave it a whirl.


Don't have the Powerslide sheet, but other sheets I have feature lighter colored numbers and Camel yellow is close.

They formulated the color when they re-released the 1/18 scale M8A Can-Am car.
