    Question What Color Code is Lincoln Red?

    If I go to a Sherwin Williams store, can they look up "Lincoln Red", or does someone know what to look for?

    I am going to paint a welding table and also was wondering if primer color matters? Seems like I remember seeing custom cars with primer in the opposite of the final color. Meaning a black car may have a light primer and a white car may have a dark primer. Of course this could be a bad dream that I am completely wrong about!

    Thanks for any advice and info!

    I got a perfect match from "Fire Red" from Plastikote spray enamel for my ranger.

    Tou could also get a paint chip and they can color match. I think Lincoln red has remained one shade for longer than Miller's blue has lasted.

    But there is an older more orange color of Lincoln red that seemed to appear somewhere in the 70's or early 80''s.

    I got a pretty close match with Rustoliums Royal red.
    But it was from a rattle can!

    I believe though after thinking about it, it may be "safety" red, or at least very close.

    Make sure you talk to a DuPont 'Automotive Paint' distributor. The 'Industrial' guys typically can't work with the automotive line paint codes.

    Thanks for the info TxDoc.
