Hello. I've been looking at the 3M vinyl colors to see what shade of red striping to put on the black GT I just ordered. Going to and from different sites, they all seem to have a standard #53 for Cardinal Red but they vary between # 13 and # 43 for Tomato Red. If someone has a clue as to what the difference is between the two TRs I'd really appreciate some info.

Thanks

I haven't heard 'Tomato Red' since the old '87-'89 GT days. That was the 3M color that the local pin striper used that he said was the same as the original 'Bittersweet' that came on those cars.

Thanks. That was one of the sites I looked at for Lemans striping. They show Tomato Red #13 so I guess now I can try to request a sample to see what it looks like.

Again, thanks
Shawn
