what is the best yellow for spraying Milners 32? Im looking for a rattlecan. Most of the yellows ive looked at seem kinda light colored. Maybe try a red or orange base first?

I painted an old Corvette with Model Masters Daytona Yellow over gray primer. It darkened it just a touch. I don't know how close of a match it would be to the yellow on Milner's '32 though.

The actual car was painted red originally, and was a full fender custom before the alterations to make it into the Milner car. I'm not sure of the exact shade of red, or if the yellow was simply shot over the red. I do seem to recall that Daytona Yellow was the color Lucas picked for it, mainly to make the car stand out.
