ian, since photobucket pulled the plug, I've been using postimage.org.
Are you using paint that was sold as Flamboyant Red, or some substitute? I know that candy apple red over a silver metallic base is very close, assuming you lay on the right amount of red.
This paint looks different in different lights, as did the original paint on my '67 Lightning. In daylight, it looked rather warm, but under street lights at night, it would take on a purplish hue.
'65(lower)/'66(upper, wheels, front end, controls)/'67(seat, exhaust, fuel tank, headlamp)/'70(frame) A65 Bitsa.
