Firetruck lime yellow paint.
Posted by Oldcarfan27 on Sunday, March 11, 2018 12:05 AM

Anybody know if there is a pre-mixed paint available that is a good match to the lime yellow color that some firetrucks come in?

Thanks

You can ask Scalefinishes.com if he has this kind of paint available or you can start looking for a Rustoleum or DupliColor alternative at a Home Depot type of store or an auto parts store like Pep Boys.

I was at hobby lobby this week and saw Krylon citrus green. Looks close to my eye but I'm not sure.

Can anyone confirm?

Thanks

Gravity Colors offer a lime yellow.  Use the link below.  The fun will be getting it, I've been waiting a month for some paint I ordered to do a camaro build.

Agreeing with Mr Mike, I actally have that bottle of paint,  I would suggest you order it from Scalefinishes, you have a much higher chance at getting your order

 

PM me if you want a special coupon code to use.

     I just used the Krylon Citrus Green on a Porsche 911 model recently. I put it over grey primer and it was kind of dull, but after trying a white primer, pictures don't capture it, but I can say that it pops. I don't have a fire truck to compare it against but that was the first thing tht crossed my mind the first time I took it out into the sunlight. For $4 it would be worth trying.
