    Red Red Red Red ...... any painters out there?

    I think you get the point. What is the reddest red color?

    No orange-red, dark-red, candy-red, red-met.

    Think Red Ferrari.

    Tamiya makes some pretty nice polycarbonate paints. . I know when you paint solid colors on Lexan if you back it with white it is a brighter hue, black makes it deeper.

    I used the Spaz Stik solid red, it really came out nice with no backer coat.

    I saw a neat trick with Tamiya. You can actually remove the paint and redo. Not sure if it the paint or the lexan that allows this.

    But this looks like a darker red. It does not look like the red from the 80's, like Magnum PI.
