I dont know if you know or care but i was wondering what color the supra off of the fast and the furious was. I am pretty sure the color is off of a lamborghini.

Yes, itwas the traditional Diablo orange...uses a white base, then on the regular Diablo, two coats of pearl orange (I believe). On my car, we had three coats, so it was a tad darker.

Call Quigleys' at 949 768 5915....they painted that car (and about 10 other cars I've owned.)

I forgot to ask but do you know the color code for that color. and by white base do you mean to have a white layer underneath?

The color code is:0058...I THINK...again, call Quigley's to be safe.


And if you don't know about base coats on candy paint jobs, a qualified body shop will.

White is the base coat...if you use silver, the paint will appear much different.

In California, we used water based paints due to EPA/CARB regs. Putting more clear on it doesn't help...in fact, it makes the paint more chip prone.

If I had to do it over again, all my cars would be painted in Az, where you can still use solvent based paints ( I believe that's what they're called).
