    Has anyone found a powdercoat or non-toyota pant that matches radiant red? I have been thinking about powdercoating my Nfab skid plate red to match my truck. It's currently plasti-dipped black but I keep thinking about changing it up. Would really like to try a spray paint first to see if I like it before dropping the money on powdercoat. I just haven't found a color that's at least close.

    If you have an auto body supply store near you take your truck there give them the paint code and they should be able to mix you up a few oz’s and put it in a spray can and you can try it out that way and you will be pretty close to the same color. Should cost around $22 buck for a can of it

    Not sure about powdercoat, but I would think a good shop could do a colored powdercoat based off the radiant red paint code of 3L5. I think a paint store could mix up some 3L5 and put in a spray can for you. There's also this: https://repaintsupply.com/3l5-radiant-red-p4698.html

    I have found a very respectable match, in my opinion. Don't laugh, but, it is New Holland Red and can be found at your nearest Tractor Supply. It is their "Majic" brand spray paint and is for Tractor, Truck & Implement use. I have found it to be pretty tough stuff especially when used with their gloss clear coat. I have used it for several things such as the "T" in the T-Force wheel center caps, license plate frame, tow hitch shackle, engine cover and under hood fuse box cover. Here is what the can looks like:

    And, here are some pics of the things I have painted with it:

    I don't have a pic of the fuse box cover but it is the same as the engine cover.

    Edit: I stand corrected, I used VHT high temp paint on the hitch shackle. Everything else is as I posted.

    Thanks! This is very helpful. Looks like that color matches pretty good. I'll be picking up a can or 2 to try it out on my skid plate. Cheap enough that I can always remove it if I don't like it.

    I can confirm. It’s dead on. Ron told me about it for an emblem. And thanks for giving him reasons to post pictures of that truck again.

    I would pick up some primer to lay down a good base for the paint base coat to stick to. I think you will like the match.
