From CT the name of the paint is Kyrlon Stained Glass Red. Good luck finding it though. I tried 2 stores downtown this weekend, no luck.

I used testors candy apple red, I think its #1605 or something like that, matches very well. Any hobby store will have it.

Found the stuff at "michaels", it is Krylon Canday Apple Red Glass paint, but it comes out pretty deep, looks sweet....here are the initial pics thus far, thought pics don't do it justice especially with a flash.....


Haha, I think I will run without tailights!LoL

First coat, luckily no overspray thus far.........

The flash makes it look a lot more red, but it is really a deep red, looks nice.
