    Saw this one for sale on line today. Something odd about it but I cant quite figure out what, but it's maroon.

    This thread is interesting to me because this will be the color of my someday paint job. It's also interesting that these are 99% non-metallic. I have it in my mind to go with metallic wine/maroon/burgundy. Here's a few metallic internet photos I've been collecting. (There's probably some candies and pearls too, but again, non-metallic is off the table for now. My project is more on the "custom" side of the bell curve, not a rod.)............

    WARNING: HIJACKING IN PROGRESS, please return your tray tables to their locked position and be prepared to give up your seat to airline personnel.

    I am finding that maroon (non metallic) is one of the tougher colors to pick out. There seems to be 2 major categories to the shade,
    1. one being cooler and comprised of more red, purple, pink hues and
    2. a warmer category that has more browns, and earthy tones.

    Some of it is lighting I am aware but I have spent hours in the paint store this week looking at chips and it is difficult. I took home a pint yesterday (paint not beer) for a spray out and it is very cold, maybe too cold for the look I am chasing.

    HD1084 just posted a picture above that is a cooler shade to illustrate my point, directly above that I posted a crazy car off the interwebs that is a warmer color. The 40 ford Mandarin maroon (Ditzler 50742) is warm but an old paint recipe that lacks the depth I desire. The color I sprayed out was 70 Ford Royal Maroon (Ditzler 50746) is cooler than I desire.

    If any of you have color codes of a nice warm, non-metallic maroon that you wouldn't mind sharing I would be appreciative.

    I now return you to your inflight movie.

    Man I feel your pain, picking a color that you intend to live with on something as important as a hotrod is a very hard thing to do, good luck!
