I have been trying to find small touch up kit for my redline SSR. All the sites that I go to say it is torch red. Is redline just another name for torch red?
Yes !!! cincyssr stay tuned to this channel, it is better than HGTV. Years ago when I first got our SSR, I noted on here it overheated in the Homecoming parade at Middle Tennessee State.I have been trying to find small touch up kit for my redline SSR. All the sites that I go to say it is torch red. Is redline just another name for torch red?
Variations and variables yes. But for the Torch red, NO. Only one formula and it recommends a white base.undercoat to achieve the correct brightness and tone of top color.Here is something interesting. I had paint mixed under 9075 Torch Red and it came out darker. Went back and second mix was spot on. I mentioned this to Oldfatguy and said he was told there is 2 variations of 9075 torch red.
Flash,Fascinating details on what a painter has to go through to get colors right.
I have always had a problem with the black on my two-tone. I like doing car shows on cloudy days, or look for trees to be in the shade on sunny days. On really bright days, the direction changes on the body, and the door edge and door frames have a very bronze look. I always assumed I got a crappy paint job from the factory, and that what I'm seeing is the primer showing through. I went after GM for a complete repaint, but soon realized the number of issues that might create down the road with seals and/or overspray, and decided to live with the crappy paint job.
Am I right about the black paint being too thin?
Also, on a 2-tone, a painter needs to have a tiny amount of intelligence to do the job right. I took the front valence, the two rear fender protectors, and the new front airdam in to my Chevy dealership to be painted while I was doing the supercharger install. When I went back to pick them up, I told the receptionist those weren't my parts, because these were silver, and mine were black when they came in.
Yup - the sprayer went with the upper paint code 67U instead of the 41L for lower.:banghead:banghead
They were not happy about having to re-do the pieces, and now if I ever get a rock chip, I'm not happy that it's a nice shiny silver instead of black. Dumbass!!!!
You are correct.Fuzzy....
Meant to say red wheels for the Redride. I will assume 3 coats of 9075 Red color over the white base coat, and then 2-3 coats of clear for my wheels unless you post different. Thanks for the info.
