I have an orange 72 240Z but the paint code sticker reads # 110. Isn't that red and orange is # 918?

The car has been repainted but even under the console and the rugs etc. is the original orange color.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.

SURPRISE!

You are absolutely right! Your color #110 Datsun Red looks more orange than red. Look at this month's car of the month, and I think you'll see your paint color.

I have a 71 with Paint Code 920 Gold or as everyone else calls it....Mustard.

This picture from the zhome archives is supposed to be ORANGE

This next one is RED

Sorry but the lack of pictures makes it hard to make it clear. In order to eliminate doubt, go to a car paint shop and ask them to show you the chip for 110 and for 918.

You'll see that the Red has a definite Orange tint to it, and that the Orange has a definite yellow tint to it.

Yup, I have a quart of 110 and it is dark orange. Just painted my 72 bright orange like a Sunkist (even came with orange peel). I spent 9 hours wetsanding it smooth. I couldn't paint it myself where I live so you get what you pay for, but I think it is all in the prep and finishing.
