    If you can't find the correct color at MCW, you could try Testors Fluorescent Red ............ it might be an acceptable match ............ I've never done a DuPont car (can't stand Gordon), but here's a car with the Testors paint ........... Derrike Cope's 1990 Lumina

    You might want to try looking at Model Car World .......... they have a large list of Nascar colors in both rattle can and bottles for airbrushing ........... I would think they would have paints for the DuPont cars

    Just take your time Joe, and don't get overly frustrated when things don't go as planned. The reaction between paints , primers, and plastic don't always follow specific guidelines. As I said, I mainly use Duplicolor primer. But not all lacquers react well with Duplicolor. And sometimes different paints from the same brand react differently to the same primer. It's like a mini-crapshoot at times. But, hang in there and work things out. It's a good idea to test the paint and primer first on a scrap body or scrap plastic before shooting that newly purchased kit body. Above all, have fun.

    Thank you guys. Your birthday wishes are greatly appreciated.

    Lacquers can be used on Nascar models as long as a suitable primer is laid down beforehand. I use Duplicolor primer, have never used the Testors primer you purchased. The metalizers can be used without primer.
    Here are a few examples of what can be done with lacquers ........ metalizers work great on engine parts
