Sweet serendipity! I was just sitting here this moment, trying to think of a way to make the STP reds on my Petty builds more red. For the most part they tend to come out orangey as they normally look after a days racing. I prefer mine to look pre-race. This might be just what i'm looking for. :D

Why not just use Plsti-Kote or Dupli-Color red oxide primer?

 

Personally, for a pink, I'd probably use white primer.

Because now you dont have too :lol:

 

If you use red primer, the red paint job wont be as bright

 

As the info says,

 

Indispensible when painting bright red, this primer provides an undercoat.

Awesome... when I painted my 288GTO I used red oxide primer and the Italian red turned out a little dark. This might be just the ticket for my next red Ferrari... probably the F50.

This is good news.....Tamiya Pink-Primer....with TS-8 ( Italian Red ) is going to go well with my Ferrari Kits...

 

I have read that Ferrari uses a Pink Primer on the Red Ferrari's.....

 

 

Thanks for the info Jonathan...

 

Cheers...Don

What a great save! That guy was almost fired for not cleaning the vat thoroughly after the formulation of TS-85 before trying to mix the Fine White Primer.  Comes out smelling like a rose…

Pink primer... sounds like a "new obsession".  I suppose it does have it's practical uses.
