alllllllllllllllllllllllllrighty then

socannot believe I am about to even admit admitting this

um, yeah... my recent paintwork doesn't match my Guards Red car

because

well, errrrrrrr uhhhhhh... my car ain't Guards. It's fookin INDISCHROT... Indian Red!!!

Now there's something I was completely floored by. Genius me in my infinite brilliance FAILED to make note of helllllo the paint code sticker in the RF inner fender under the carpet. Duh?

Always just ASSumed it was Guards. I mean, when I say Guards, this is what I think of.

I'm mortified. Tho, I'm only 1/2 to blame - my poor paint guy coulda shoulda freakin noticed the parts I handed him did not look like the parts he returned. D'oh.

He picked it all up tonight and is scuffing / reshooting. No biggie. But again, embarrassing.

I'm more just literally floored I did not know this. Colossal D'ohage!!!

What say you? Did you all know 'this'? Guards is more orangey red, Indischrot is redred. My car's cleared too - tho, it's a repaint.

WEIRD!
