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.

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.

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 .

I have used the yellow one, it does work, that does look like a dead on match

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.
