Thanks for posting my pic Mark.
Its a solid colour, very similar to Hugger but not as dark. In the sun it glows !

I looked at loads of orange's & sprayed some out on 1;25 57 kit bodys, before choosing this one. Let me know if you want more info & I'll try & find the colour code.

You gotta love an orange 57 Chevy

Just picked up a gallon of Hugger Orange paint to spray on a 1976 Chevy stepside truck. He said that he wanted it a bright orange, and I told him "I have the perfect color for you" I haven't sprayed it yet, but I am positive that this color is going on my 57. Thanks for all of the help with the color choice, I will send you some pics when I get it done. Keith

Here's a nice one! Looks unbelievable in person. The color is much more orange than the photo shows. Gorgeous. His shop is across the aisle from mine.

I was going to use House of Kolors Sunset pearl which is one shade lighter from Tangelo. I changed my mind after spraying out a test card and went black and silver instead. Of all the oranges, Tangelo is by far the nicest. Here's a picture of Steve Caspary's 55 in House of Kolor Tangelo and White Pearl.





Very nice color on these cars.
