It's funny that I know several owners who painted their cars Guards Red. At
the time, I thought they figured 'what's good for my 944 is good for the
maybe they were just tipped off by Doug or other restorer.
The tip to bring a unfaded piece of the Tiger in to the paint mixer is a good
one. I don't have a Carnival Red car (it's actually Deep Canyon Red / Maroon)
but the two fuel tank retaining brackets in the trunk are #39 C.Red, and maybe
someone trying to match the color can bring one of theirs to the mixer. It comes
off with just three bolts.
