    While that can be helpful, at least to get you started, be mindful that on a transparent color, as this can be, the color of the ground coats can affect the tone of the finish coat. Then there's the problem of obsolete colors. My '36 roadster for instance is painted with a straight maroon toner off the Sikkens mixing rack..................however, they dropped that line of paint about 7 years ago so that exact toner is no longer available. (Dial in the talents of a good color matcher here.)

    My 36 Willys sedan, was only finished a week or two before we set out to Tulsa from NY for the NSRA street rod nats in 1976. Color was 1975 BMW Malaga Red and we used the Glasurit paint.

    Yup, ...I like Maroon and that ox-blood colour....reminds me of the old days when my dad had his 31 ford coupe in the early 60's---he was always switching between blue teal and Maroon every spring...that maroon was just so mesmerizing...he was a big one on 'changing' colours, but I preferred that deep dark maroon any day of the week!!!:D
