View Full Version : Need Super Red Paint

08-18-2009, 05:41 AM
So I'm deciding to finally paint my 5th Gen after having it look like 3 shades of red for so long. Its finally going to look good since all it really needs is a new paint job. But i dont know where to get the paint. do i just go to the dealership and ask for it or does anybody here have a website where i can order some? Oh and how much should i buy to paint the entire car?

Super Red II is an extremely easy color to get.

Hell, they even sell it in spray cans.

Go to a store like NAPA that sells paint. Just tell them Toyota Super Red II and they'll get it.

just spend 225 dollars at macco if your going to cheap out, i did that once with good results

by the time you rattle can your car and if you do it the right way its gonna cost you about 100-150 anyway

Super Red is super easy to get. I just bought mine at Sherman Williams automotive paint store. Go with base clear. If you're doing an all over job, go with their Dimension line. It's cheaper and fine for an all over. It was $57 a quart with the reducer. They have a clear coat pack, a gallon of clear and the reduce for $60 I think it was. All together I had less than $130.

The code for super red is 3E5

Thanks for the info i'll look into getting the paint really soon i cant wait to see it when its finished.

BTW i've seen pic of a 5th Gen on here i just dont remember who had it. It was a glossy ass 5th gen and and bike with matching paint.

Yeah the orignal paint from toyota was a single stage paint (lack of clear)the paint code for our red if 3e5 prime.
