Any ideas of a close match for the green, used on Danica Patricks 2012 Go Daddy.com Cup car?  Thinking of using Testors Mopar "sub-lime green".

I know its a little lighter, but the nearest thing I found in hobby paints.

Thanks, Vernon

Have you checked out Tamiya's TS-35 Park Green in the spray can?  That looks close to my eye.

check that site. I think the places that sell automotive paint can custom mix any color if they have the code, which is included in that link. Hope it helps.

Having seen the car at the track, it is a neon green.

Thanks Jonathan....I just picked up some Tamiya TS22 light green, and I agree with you.  It is close enough. 

Also thank you Jim,  The car is definetly neon green.

 

I just bought an update resin air dam off ebay that is a perfect fit and looks just like the 2011 & 2012 cars and got the car in primer last night.  I hope to have it painted this weekend,  if so I'll post some pictures.

 

Thanks alot guys, you were both a lot of help.

 

Vernon

 

By the way Jonathan, your #7 car turned out great, how did you update the nose?

Years ago I remember seeing the STP indy cars out at Ontario Motor Speedway. They were so much brighter day-glo red than any TV or print mag showed. Must be the same with this green.

Your welcome, just make sure paint it over a white base coat of primer

The Nationwide car I did that was all bondo and a lot of sanding

I was in Walmart today and picked up this new paint from Krylon .  The cap looks pretty dark but I did a spoon test and it looks great !  This was over white primer and it is a bit flat so a clear would be needed .  Green Fluorescent # 3106 .

Hello Bob...I agree this appears to be a perfect match.  I will have to swing by Walmart on the home tonight and pick up a can.

 

By the way, I love your sppon test.  I'm glad to see someone else does this.

 

Thanks again,  I'll let you know what happens.

Hello Bob....Picked up a can of Krylon# 3106 green this weekend and agree, this is a near perfect match.

Thanks for the tip.
