Best Tide Orange?

Recommended Posts

  Although most of my builds are in the Truck side of the forum, i am a race fan.  I am planning on doing my old favorite DW's Daytona winning Tide ride.. Looking for suggestions on what color would best be used on it.. Mainly in spray can form. Thanks

I used a fluorescent orange on mine many years ago.  It was flat so it needs a gloss coat of some kind before adding decals.

The tide car was done in florescent from what I understand. The problem is florescent dye is not lightfast. So if you do this, keep the model out of direct light to keep it from fading.

I used Tamiya's 'Orange' straight from the rattle-can on Ricky's 2002 Taurus that I finished last year.

I just used Testors competition orange over white primer when I did mine years back.

Tamiya has a new TS color,  TS-96 fluorescent orange that should do the trick

Back when I was a printer, we printed the Tide boxes. To make the Florescent Orange on the box pop more, we printed it over Florescent Yellow. So if you spray yellow over white primer then the orange, you should get the same rich Tide Orange colour after you clear coat .

I used Tamiya neon orange(PS-24) on my current Tide project... it's for lexan, but works great with two part clear cover it.

That's an awesome looking fade job you did with the paint, Roger.
