I'll get that information when I go to look at the comparison with the sample card.

If you really like it I may have some parts to sell

I was just looking at this orange gradient scale (red to yellow). The color on my parts seems to be pretty far toward yellow, maybe 2/3 of the distance from the left. The sample card I chose was definitely left of center.

Looking at your parts and the swatch, I have to agree, seems like it needs a little more red. I still like the color, I don't think I can sneak that many parts by my wife.... , otherwise I'd think about what you said to HogWild.

Compare the two pics attached. The fender looks gold while the other piece looks more like a standard candy orange. It just depends on the angle and lighting but for the most part, in person, it has a butterscotch look to it.

Any thoughts about this particular color? Would you consider it? Iím not even sure what to call it.
Well I'd start by not using butterscotch. Maybe Death Blow Orange, or Baboon Ass Red....maybe Zion Zazzle! I am hoping you end up going with it, maybe some contrasting hilites to tone it down some. I really like it when people put one-of-a-kind colors on their bikes.

I think I'll stick with my Sedona but it would look real unique with a mixture of the two wouldn't it. Your inner, side panels or something. But, don't get any ideas. Chip Foose painted a truck a while back in a custom color he called ButterScorch. How about Burnt OJ? haha

You mean, like White? Actually, I like the simplicity of your new paint job.

How about Road Kill Tangerine?
